Washington, D. C., December 4., 1905 
SIR: I have the honor to submit my report as Librarian 
of Congress for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1905. 


The following table exhibits the appropriations and ex- 
penditures of the Library proper and of the Copyright 
Office for the fiscal year, and the appropriations for the 
year now current. Details are given in Appendix la. In- 
cluded also are the appropriations for the equipment and 
care of the building and grounds, expended by the Super- 
intendent. The allotment for printing and binding (dur- 
ing the past year $185,000) is not included.

8 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Of the $3 1 1, 360 appropriated for salaries, exclusive of 
the Sunday and special services, $932.30 were unex- 
pended and remain in the Treasury. This sum repre- 
sents not a surplus provision for service, but salaries for 
a time undrawn, those of employees temporarily absent 
without pay, or of new appointees who failed to qualify 
promptly after appointment. 

As will be seen, the appropriations for the past year 
were substantially identical with those for the preceding. 
In the general force the increase was merely of a thou- 
sand dollar employee. The only other increases in the 
appropriations under my control (those for the Copyright 
Office and the Card Section) were to meet the increas- 
ing business in two divisions of our work which are self- 
sustaining; and were more than offset by the receipts. 

For the coming year there has been provided no in- 
crease except of $1,000 for service in one of these two 
divisions the Card Section. I asked for none other, ex- 
cept the following, all in repetition of previous requests: 

i stenographer and typewriter for the Periodical Division, at. . $900 

i clerk, Copyright Office, at 600 

Certain increases of salary in the nature of adjustments, 

amounting to 2, 500 

Additional for increase of the Library I 10, ooo 

Index to comparative legislation 28, ooo 

These are also the limit of my requests in the estimates 
recently submitted for the fiscal year 1906-7. If I go no 
'further it is not because there is not useful work on hand 
and in prospect exceeding the capacity of our present force, 
but because I wish to keep the estimates within the dimen- 
sion which five years ago I stated to be necessary for a 
reasonable progress with the work then seen to be abso- 
lutely necessary. In point of numbers the force is now as 
I planned for then; but the organization is not, nor will 
it be, until there shall be granted the increases in salary 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 9 

which are necessary to adjust fairly the salaries of certain 
emploj^ees doing equivalent work without equivalent pay. 


(Noting only changes prior to June 30, 1905) 

Among the resignations of the past year has been that Resignations 
of Mr. J. Christian Bay, of our Catalogue Division, a well- 
trained specialist in certain branches of science, particularly 
natural history and biology. He left us to become chief 
classifier of the John Crerar Library of Chicago. In 
exchange, however, Mr. Clarence W. Perley has returned 
to us from that very position. His specialty is rather the 
applied sciences. In these also the division has been 
strengthened by the appointment of Mr. H. H. B. Meyer, 
late of the New York Public Library. Mr. Alexis V. 
Babine, our specialist in Russian literature, resigned last 
spring to become a member of the office of the Associated 
press at St. Petersburg. Miss Laura Hammond, of the 
Catalogue Division, accepted the post of librarian of the 
Georgia School of technology. 

Another government library has been supplied from our 
service, that of the Naval War College at Newport, to the 
librarianship of which Mr. Frederick C. Hicks, late of our 
Map Division, was appointed after competitive examination. 

The Copyright Office has lost the exceedingly efficient 
services of Mr. Leonard B. Cool, its chief clerk, \vho 
resigned last March to accept a business position of 
promise, requiring initiative and executive ability. 

The conduct of the Division of Documents, from which 
Mr. Falkner resigned a year ago,. has been assigned for the 
present to Mr. James D. Thompson, who has been with 
us for several years, rendering important service in the 
cataloguing and classification of scientific literature, and 
of late designated as in charge of the '.' Science Section"

The fees from copyrights are covered into the Treasury, 
and not applied directly to the maintenance of the Copy- 
right Office. They form a regular revenue of the Govern- 
ment, however, and a net revenue over the direct expenses 
of the office, as appears from the following comparison:

Stationery and sundries 967. 72

The amount expended for salaries ($74,662.46) includes 
the sum of $4,680 paid in salaries to certain employees who 
have been classifying and crediting the old deposits received 
prior to 1897. This expenditure is chargeable to arrears. 
The current expenses of the office are therefore considerably 
more than met by the current receipts. 

The above statement includes all disbursements except the 
cost of furniture, of printing, and of binding, but only cash 

In addition to cash fees the copyright business brings 
each year to the Government, in the articles deposited, 
property to the value of many thousands of dollars. During 
the past fiscal year 207,424 such articles were received. 
The value of those drawn up into the collections of the 
Library far exceeded the amount of net cash earnings. 

The work of the Copyright Office is divided into two 
portions: (i) The current business, covering applications 
received since the reorganization of the office under the 
Register in 1897; ( 2 ) tne arrears, the classification, credit- 
ing, and indexing of the entries and deposits prior to 1897 
(i. e., from 1870, when the office was first placed under the 
Librarian of Congress). 

On the 6th day of July, 1905, when the report of the c PYRIGHT o*" 


Copyright Office was submitted, the remittances received current butt- 
up to the third mail of the day had been recorded and"' 
acknowledged; the account books of the bookkeeping divi-

sion were written up and posted to June 30, and the accounts 
rendered to the Treasury Department were settled up to 
and including the month of June, while earned fees to June 
30, inclusive, had been paid into the Treasury. 

All copyright applications received up to and including 
June 30 had been 1 passed upon and refunds made. The 
total unfinished business for the full eight years, from July 
i, 1897, to June 30, 1905, amounts to but $442.47, as 
against a total of completed business for the same period of 


At the close of business on July 6, 1905, notwithstanding 

the intervening Saturday half -holiday and Sunday, the 

* titles for record in all classes had been dated, classified, and 

numbered to June 30. All titles had been indexed up to 

June 30. 

The articles of all classes deposited during the ) 7 ear had 
been stamped, catalogued, and credited up to the receipts 
of June 30, inclusive. 

The Catalogue of Title Entries had been brought for- 
ward to No. 730 of June 29, 1905. 

The certificate and noncertificate entries (all classes ex- 
cept A to June 27, and B and C to June 28) had been 
recorded to June 30, inclusive, and certificates and notices 
of entry to the same date, made, revised, and mailed.

compositions (previously arranged by years of entry) have

Credited articles to the number of 44,263 (including 
6,083 pamphlets, 12,932 leaflets, 9,694 periodicals, and 
14,071 musical compositions) have been properly filed 
away under year and number. In the work of crediting

of 772 articles, identification and credit could not be made, 
and they were accordingly indexed and filed. 

Index cards (title and proprietor) for dramatic composi-

a The number of pieces of manuscripts in the library June 30, 1904, was esti- 
mated in my last report as 121,266. Such an estimate, itemizing, for example 
every letter in an unbound collection, but rating as but a unit a collection of let- 
ters in a bound volume, professes a particularity which it does not imply. It has 
been customary, but we shall for the present discontinue it. When the collection 
shall have become grouped into volumes we may resume the statistics upon the 
basis of these.

1 6 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

A list of the accessions of the year should of course 
accompany a complete exhibit of the year's operations. 
We could not justify the expense of printing it ; and I 
do not feel inclined longer to justify the expense of 
printing the "Select Lists of Recent Purchases," which 
have formed appendices to the reports during the past 
four years. The disposition of the Library in its delib- 
erate development is sufficiently indicated by the three 
such lists already issued with this very purpose. Here- 
after we shall limit the recital of important accessions to 
general descriptions in the main text, of collections, and 
to lists (appended) only of such items as may have 
enriched in a notable way some particular department of 

Thus the present report includes such particular men- 
tion of additions to the Manuscripts, Maps, and Print 
divisions, and the Law Library, with itemized lists of 
certain notable additions, particularly in law. 

Except for the Kellen collection of law and certain collec- 
tions of manuscripts, there has been no important purchase 
en bloc. The former is referred to under Law Library, below, 
and is listed in full in Appendix VI. The latter are 
Notable gifts described under " Manuscripts," below. More important 
collections of manuscript than those bought have, however, 
been received as gifts. These also are described below. 
The additions to the Orientalia have included 198 works in 
Chinese, comprising 1,965 volumes, which formed part of 
the exhibit of China (the Province of Hupeh) at the 
Louisiana Purchase Exposition, and at its conclusion were 
given to the Library by the Chinese government through 
its legation at Washington. There have been other gifts of 
Orientalia, especially 120 volumes from the Fort William 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 17 

College at Calcutta, which bring our collection of Orientalia 
to a total of 12,400 volumes, as follows : 

Manchu 950 

Chinese 9, 700 

Japanese 750 

Arabic 125 

Turkish 400 

Persian 50 

Armenian 90 

Siamese 90 

Unclassified Bugi, Gujeratee, Hindu, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telu- 

gee, etc 245 

Total 12, 400 

Of these the Chinese (except those from St. Louis) 
and Japanese have all been catalogued. The catalogue 
of the Chinese should be printed. It awaits only some 
revision as to form which Professor Dr. Hirth, of 
Columbia, has kindly consented to give it. 

As appears from the records below of the accessions Gifts from 

governments of 

to particular divisions, there have been other notable gifts France and Ger- 
of material special in character; for example, from France m 
and -from the Argentine Republic, collections ^of photo- 
graphs exhibiting the activities, etc., of learned societies 
and universities; from Italy the collection of photographs, 
plans, and maps of Italian railroads all three of which 
formed instructive portions of the respective governmental 
exhibits at St. Louis; from Germany the collection of fac- 
simile reproductions by the ' ' Reichsdruckerei ' ' of engrav- 
ings by the old masters, entitled " Kupferstiche und 
Holzschnitte alter Meister in Nachbildungen. " This 
publication represents for Germany a service to the study 
of prints which for France is rendered by the prints issued 
by the Chalcographie du Louvre a set of which was 
presented to us two years ago by the Government of 
France. The Library is thus reaping valuable benefit

from the comity between our Government and those of 
foreign countries. 

The paragraphs which follow, descriptive of the acces-

operation, are in the main drawn from the reports to me

During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1905, the acces-

Comparison with the statistics of the previous fiscal year 
shows a very large increase in the receipts from all sources 
listed in the above table, except those included under the 
heading ' ' Gifts of local governments. ' ' 

Transfers of duplicates or documents no longer in use 
at the Department libraries form the greater part of the 
13,019 volumes and pamphlets noted as " gifts of the Gov- 
ernment of the United States in all its branches." 

During the past year the list of countries to which the 
United States sends its documents regularly in exchange 
has been increased by the addition of Bolivia, Ceylon, 
Egypt, Malta, Nicaragua, Orange River Colony, and 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 19 

Salvador, and is now to include the Empire of China; an 
understanding with the Chinese authorities having been 
effected through the American Minister at Pekin, Mr. 

Arrangements have been made by which the Library of 
Congress now receives the official publications of the 
Dominion of Canada as issued in paper covers. Heretofore 
only the bound volumes of the sessional papers were for- 
warded to the Library, usually a year after the publication 
of the separate reports. 

Among the notable additions to the Library received DOCUMENTS: 


in this Division during the past year were 191 volumes 
and 50 pamphlets, the gift of the Imperial Free Economic 
Society, St. Petersburg, consisting of the reports of the 
Russian local governments, and three important collections 
from the official exhibits at the Louisiana Purchase Exposi- 
tion, presented by the French, Italian, and Chinese Govern- 
ments, respectively, viz: the publications of learned societies 
and universities of France (840 volumes, 144 pamphlets), 
together with photographs, lithographs, etc., which formed 
part of the exhibit of the French Ministry of public instruc- 
tion; 80 volumes, 36 pamphlets, and a collection of photo- 
graphs, plans, and maps relating to Italian railroads, from 
the exhibit of the Italian Ministry of public works; and the 
collection of Chinese books exhibited from the Province of 

During the year a special effort has been made to 
strengthen the collection of foreign law by application to 
the various Governments for the publications not yet in the 
Library. Through the cooperation of the diplomatic and 
consular representatives of the United States valuable addi- 
tions were made to the collection of codes, statutes, and 
court reports of the following countries: Bulgaria, Colom- 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Colonial stat- 


bia, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Norway, 
Paraguay, Peru, Switzerland, and Venezuela. 

Letters were addressed to the secretaries of the various 
British colonies and all the statutes available were received 
from the following: Cape Colony, Gambia, Gibraltar, 
Hong Kong, India, Lagos, Mauritius, Natal, New South 
Wales, New Zealand, Orange River Colony, St. Lucia, 
Straits Settlements, Transvaal, and Victoria. 

The ' ' Want list of American statutes ' ' has also been 
taken up systematically and a considerable number of the

The usual table of accessions, which I stated in my last 
report to be misleading, is omitted, as it becomes more mis- 
leading each year. Were the accessions few in number,

easily identified, and capable of being at once permanently D i v i s i o N OP 
located, such a statement by number would be possible. Bjut Accessions 
each large collection contains thousands of pieces which are 
received in a much-confused condition, with wrappers, mem- 
oranda, note and account books, checks and receipts a mass 
of miscellaneous accumulations of many descriptions. To 
count the papers on receipt is misleading, as in their folded 
condition inclosures would escape notice and the various 
sheets or parts of a single letter or document if separated 
would be counted two or more times. The collection as 
received may contain matter that is returned to the giver 
or that 1 is discarded as of no public value or interest. The 
difference between the number of pieces in the original 
condition of the collection and the number of pieces in 
the collection as finally assorted and ready for permanent 
treatment would often be great, so great as to vitiate any 
statements of count. I therefore omit the statistical table 
of accessions, and shall trust in future to state the actual 
number in each collection as finally arranged and bound. 
The measure of the growing importance of the manu- 
script collections is shown by the number and nature of 
its accessions, whether by gift or by purchase, and by the 
number and character of those persons who have had 
occasion to consult these collections. Of the latter, no 
detailed list could be given; but it may be stated that the 
number of those who have spent weeks and even months 
in reading the manuscripts for historical writing has been 
larger than ever before, and the students represent some 
of the best workers in American history. The conven- 
ience and appliances, the manner of treating manuscripts, 
and the liberal rules governing their use have drawn atten- 
tion to the advantages offered to the student. Copyist 
and photographer stand ready to give prompt attention 
to. what is required, and the searcher may thus personally

supervise the transcript of material or may call in pho- 
tography to supply a reproduction which no copyist can 

In number and extent of accessions the year was a not- 
able one. The usual list of accessions is given in Appen- 
dix VII. It is only necessary to state in this place that 
the original range of 12 cases and 20 safes for storing 
manuscripts has already proved insufficient to house the 
growing stores, and a second range of 12 cases will be 
put under glass during the current year. 

The list of manuscripts received by gift during the 
fiscal year 1905 is given in full in Appendix VII. 

A very large and, in some respects, a most important 
gift has been made by Miss Sophonisba Preston Breckin- 
ridge and Mr. Desha Breckinridge, children of the late 
Hon. William C. P. Breckinridge, of Lexington, Ky. 
Their father had a lifelong interest in the history of 
Kentucky, and had brought together the papers of his 
family from many sources. This great accumulation he 
had arranged as his time permitted, but his constant oc- 
cupation in the public service, involving long absences 
from Kentucky, prevented his completing the task or his 
making the use of the papers which he had in mind. 
His children have given the entire collection to the Li- 
brary, subject to certain conditions. An extract from the 
letter of Miss Breckinridge will show the liberal spirit 
inspiring the gift. 


February 6, 1905. 

"My Dear Mr. Putnam: May I now offer you the 
papers given me by my Father in his will to belong 
to the Congressional Library subject to my right to go 
through them within three years after I am told that 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 23 

they are ready for my inspection, and to my right to 
retain exclusive use for two more years in case I want 
to make use of any of them in historical work. I should 
like them known as The Breckinridge Papers. I feel 
very sure that we both want the same thing that such 
value as these papers may have may be made accessible 
to all the world of students. 

' ' Very truly yours, 

' ' Sophonisba Preston Breckinridge 

It remains to add a word on the nature and extent of the 
collection. The leading features are the papers of John 
Breckinridge (1760-1806); John Breckinridge, his son 
(1797-1841); Robert Jefferson Breckinridge, another son 
(1800-1871), and William Campbell Preston Breckinridge, 
son of Robert (1837-1905). In addition there are papers 
of many other members of the family and connections. 
The number can not be closely estimated, for the papers 
are in envelopes, scrapbooks, file cases, and paster-books; 
but between twenty-five and thirty thousand would be a 
conservative estimate. Only a glance can be given at the 
contents, for the present arrangement must be changed to 
enable an examination to be made. John Breckinridge, the 
elder, was an early settler in Kentucky; the friend and 
correspondent of Jefferson; prominent in the State legis- 
lature; the proposer, if not the framer, of the Kentucky 
resolutions of 1798; United States Senator from Kentucky; 
and Attorney- General in Jefferson's Cabinet. In Kentucky 
affairs he was a leader, and his wide connection in his 
native state of Virginia and in Kentucky give to his corre- 
spondence the weight of public and of social interest. In 
one roll were found the papers relating to the Kentucky 
resolutions of 1798; in another, the printed reports from day 
to day and the notes of debates in the State constitutional 
WB 1905 3 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

convention of 1799 two rolls containing unique papers 
upon matters which involve the largest questions of consti- 
tutional law and interpretation. Such material, selected 
haphazard from the loose papers, indicates possibilities of 
rich historical discoveries. Robert Breckinridge was for 
some years in political life, but abandoning politics he 
became one of the leaders in the Presbyterian church. His 
papers are rich in controversial matters, in questions of 
church government, and on the moral problems of the day, 
slavery being the most important. The dissensions which 
rent the Presbyterian church and the division in the nation 
causing the civil war were matters brought close to him. 
As a defender of the old church and one loyal to the Union 
when members of his own family were in opposition, his 
papers reflect the conditions which produced the contests, 
and the incidents attending their solution. William C. P. 
Breckinridge served in the Confederate army and was long 
Representative in Congress from the State of Kentucky, 
well known for his oratory, his mastery of public questions, 
and his loyalty to Democracy. Such a record of a single 
family, which for more than a century has been prominent 
in public life, is unusual, if not unique. Merely as a family 
history its historical content would be valuable, for the 
Breckinridges were widely connected with many of the 
prominent families of Virginia. 

But it is not as a family collection that the papers will 
be best known. Kentucky was a frontier State. It was 
the cradle of Democracy, that Democracy which gave birth 
and occasion to Jackson, to Polk, and their successors. Its 
social conditions have retained many of its original fea- 
tures, and a certain clannishness created leadership which 
centered in a few families, of which the Breckinridges con- 
stituted one. No better picture of these conditions could 
be found or imagined, and the society which in the Ken- 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 25 

tucky of the eighteenth century looked south and west for 
its commercial emancipation, sought political freedom and 
leadership in the first half of the nineteenth century, and in 
1860, an existence outside of the Federal constitution. 
The social conditions pertaining to the people of this State 
which have given rise to such a political history are worthy 
of careful study, and for this study the Breckinridge papers 
will be essential. 

Dr. Stuyvesant Fish Morris, of New York, has made Van Bur en 


important additions to the collection of Martin Van Buren 
papers. That collection, the gift of Mrs. Smith Thomp- 
son Van Buren, was described in the report of the 
librarian for 1904, page 42. Rich as it is in historical 
material its value has been much increased by the papers 
which Dr. Morris has so generously given. The addi- 
tion includes 860 letters, most of them written to Van 
. Buren while Secretary of state, Vice-President, and Pres- 
ident, and 62 circulars, printed broadsides, and campaign 
material. Not only do these documents cover a very 
important political period, but they form in themselves 
the best guide to the political movements of the dominant 
party and the best index of the hopes, fears, and ambi- 
tions of the leading political managers in the Van Buren 
following. A long list might be made of the good things 
to be found in them, such as the letters and memoranda 
by Andrew Jackson on the Texan question; but a mere 
mention of some of the prominent writers must suffice. 
Of the writings of Francis P. Blair there are 100 pieces, 
including copies of his business controversy with Amos 
Kendall. Of Benjamin F. Butler, of New York, the life- 
long friend and confidant of Van Buren, there are 52 
letters. Thomas H. Benton is represented by 30 letters and 
George Bancroft by 34. Of New York writers the follow- 
ing may be mentioned: John A. Dix, 23; C. C. Cambreleng, 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 


10; A. C. Flagg, 32; James Gordon Bennett, 6; Samuel J. 
Tilden, 4; E. Croswell, 10; H. Bleecker, 6; William C. 
Bryant, i, and James Fenimore Cooper, i. Other names 
are: James Buchanan, 17; James K. Polk, 6; P. V. Dan- 
iel, 19; John Forsyth, 19; Lewis Cass, 8; Thomas N. 
Carr, 10; John H. Baton, 5; Governor William Carroll, 
5; J. W. Edmonds, 9; Salmon P. Chase, 3; Simon Cam- 
eron, 3; J. Bragg (of Mobile), 6; S. R. Betts, 6; Frank- 
lin Pierce, 3; William S. Archer, 4; Gideon Welles, 4; 
and William Allen, of Ohio, 3. In the forty drafts of 
Van Buren letters is found that of his well-known letter 
to Sherrod Williams, but unfortunately with a few leaves 
missing. These drafts are of especial interest, as they 
show the care with which Van Buren prepared his replies 
to his correspondents and laid down his political principles. 
In many instances the letter was entirely rewritten, and in 
these drafts may thus be seen the first thoughts of the 
writer, and the more studied and final form in which 
these thoughts were sent out to become motive power of 
political action. The letters to Van Buren from his cor- 
respondents are not merely perfunctory notes, but lengthy 
communications on the political situation. Altogether, 
for the period it covers, the Van Buren collection is of 
incalculable value to the historian and will alw r ays remain 
a monument to the man and to the public spirit of those 
who have so freely given it to the historical archives of 
the nation. 

From the family of Ephraim George Squier the Library 
received a collection of the papers of that archaeologist, 
which much strengthens the material in the Library on the 
ancient history of America. His original researches and 
diplomatic services bore fruit in writings which received 
recognition at home and abroad, and his wide sympathies 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 27 

give to his general correspondence a corresponding interest. 
From many sources he received material on Indian remains 
in America, and a close study of this collection will develop 
its richness in material as yet unused by him or his succes- 
sors. Of Mr. Squier's own manuscripts maybe mentioned: 
those pertaining to the "Ancient monuments of the Missis- 
sippi valley," with the illustrations drawn by the author; 
the manuscripts relating to Aubin's " Mexican picture writ- 
ings;" papers on Indian tribes and vocabularies; documents 
and manuscripts on South American countries and Indians, 
and miscellaneous manuscripts on archaeological subjects. 
With these are ten volumes containing 2,200 letters from 
his correspondents, neatly mounted and bound. It would 
be difficult to describe the contents without becoming too 
particular, and some selected names must suffice to indicate 
the character of this collection: Louis Agassiz, 8; Aubin, 
12; Prisse d'Avennes, 19; Spencer F. Baird, 16; Joseph 
Henry, 46; G. Barrios, 9; Brasseur de Bourbourg, 8; Pas- 
cual de Gayangos, 8; J. de Marcoleta, 42; S. Birch (of the 
British Museum), 32; Thomas Wright, 25; William Black- 
more, 10; George R. Glidden, 59; Henry B. Anthony, 30; 
Brantz Mayer, 22; JosiahC. Nott, 34; Charles Eliot Norton, 
36; Buckingham Smith, 29, and George Gibbs, 13. 

Mrs. James T. Fields, of Boston, Mass., has given to the Fields gift 
literary collections of the Library a number of interesting 
examples drawn from her rich stores. I regret to admit 
that in literarypieces the Library is not rich, and occasional 
letters of American and foreign authors found in the politi- 
cal collections do not serve to remedy this deficiency. The 
gift of Mrs. Fields was therefore all the more welcome as 
giving the foundation for such a class of manuscripts. 
Among the items given by Mrs. Fields were: James Russell 
Lowell, leaf from the "Biglow Papers;" Ralph Waldo Km- 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Watsons Co- 


erson, a letter and lines of manuscript; John G. Whittier, a 
poem (Andrew Rykm an 's prayer) and letter; Oliver Wendell 
Holmes, a letter and a page of "Elsie Vernier;" letters of 
Henry W. Longfellow, Francis Parkman, Edwin Booth, 
Henry Ward Beecher, W. D. Ho wells, and Nathaniel Haw- 
thorne; also manuscript poems by John Pierpont and Celia 
Thaxter, and an article in the writing of Harriet Martineau. 

From other sources like material has been received: 

At the suggestion of the late Mr. John Hay, the original 
manuscript of William Watson's poem on "Columbus" 
was given to the Library. The poem was written for the 
occasion of the four hundredth anniversary of the discovery 
of America, and was printed in the London Illustrated 
News. With this interesting and characteristic manuscript 
is a printed copy of the poem. The donor was Mr. John 

Mr. Wendell P. Garrison, of New York, has sent addi- 
tions to the collection already known under his name, and 
Mrs. Henry Carrington Bolton has given a manuscript 
poem, "Passaic," by Washington Irving. 

It is hardly necessary to say that the Library invites 
such material. It desires to possess examples of the writ- 
ings and manuscripts of the authors, artists, actors, and 
musicians of the United States. Political history is only 
one phase of national life, and all other phases of social 
activity and development should be as richly represented. 
The Squier and Schoolcraft, Fitch and Thornton papers 
offer much of value in science; but letters now in the 
Library of the better known authors are few in number 
and not important in contents. 

Johnson papers M r> Andrew J. Patterson, of Greeneville, Tenn., pre- 
sented to the Library fifteen letters of his grandfather, 
President Andrew Johnson, addressed to B. McDannel, of 
Tennessee. These letters are interesting in themselves, 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 29 

and some of them are early examples of Johnson's letters 
earlier than any before possessed by the Library. Mr. 
Patterson has also very courteously deposited in the 
Library certain papers of Andrew Johnson and his son, 
Robert Johnson, which make the ''Johnson collection " 
more complete, and round out the record of the military 
service of the son. 

Mr. A. B. Eldredge, of Marquette, Mich., has .given a 
very important paper which supplements the Johnson 
material. It is the original protest of the minority of the 
House of Representatives against the impeachment of 
President Johnson. This paper is in the writing of Hon. 
Charles A. Eldredge, then a member of the House, but it 
was not received by the House or permitted to be spread 
upon the Journals. This document has the signatures of 
47 of the protesting members. 

Here, too, should be mentioned a frame of relics of the Relics f the 

Alabama and the 

Confederate cruiser Alabama, presented by the Rev. Edward 
William Odborne, of Springfield, 111. They consist of a 
discharge of a seaman of the vessel, signed by Raphael 
Semmes and Francis L. Gait; a clipping from the Christian 
World (London) giving an account of the encounter with 
the Kearsarge, and a cap band, stamped Alabama, This 
frame has naturally attracted much attention from visitors. 

The Library possessed very few examples of the various confederate 
issues of paper currency made by the South during the c * 
civil war. An effort was made to increase the collection. 
It will be seen that gifts were received from the First 
National bank of Richmond, Va. (34 pieces), and from the 
First National bank of Harrisonburg, Va. (2 pieces). Mr. 
Dunbar Rowland, of Mississippi, presented 18 pieces of the 
cotton and railway notes of that State, as well as the usual 
State issues. 

30 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Dickins papers ^rs. Harriott (Dickins) Wight, of Washington, D. C., 
has presented to the Library of Congress certain papers 
which belonged to Asbury Dickins and to her father, 
Hrancis A. Dickins. Asbury Dickins was in the service 
of the Government for forty-five years, having appoint- 
ments in the Treasury and State departments, and from 
1836 to 1 86 1 he held the office of Secretary of the Senate. 
He was thus in touch with the public men of the time, 
and, as secretary of the Columbian Institute, he held a 
position favorable to observation of the growing scientific 
work of the Government. Unfortunately, the papers now 
given are only a fragmentary part of his collection, and his 
son, Francis A. Dickins, appears to have retained them 
as autographs rather than as historical letters. As auto- 
graphs, they add to what was already in the Library, 
for many names of prominence are included, and the 
examples are of a very good quality. The collection 
includes some 200 letters, beside signatures, paper money 
of the Revolution, copies of Virginia muster rolls (Revo- 
lution), statistical statements, and printed documents. 
Under the conditions attached to the gift they will be 
known as the ' ' Dickins ' ' papers. 

Chase papers In the Chase papers were found a series of letters from 
George Stanton Denison to the Secretary of the Treasury, 
written from New Orleans during the Civil War. The 
interest and quality of the letters led to an inquiry if 
further writings of his could be found. His brother, 
Mr. James Denison, of Kendall Green, Washington, D. C., 
has presented to the Library 150 family letters written 
by George Denison during his life in Texas and Louisi- 
ana before and during the war. While writing little 
upon politics and public men, these letters present the 
views of a northern man on the social condition of the 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 31 

South just before the war, and supplement in many par- 
ticulars the letters in the Chase collection. Another 
brother, Mr. Franklin Denison, of Chicago, 111., has 
added copies of three letters written by George Denison 
in 1862 which were published in the Burlington (Vt.) 
Daily Free Press. With these letters is a scrapbook con- 
taining clippings from New Orleans newspapers on cus- 
toms regulations and financial institutions while Denison 
was in charge of the Custom House. 

The Library has received some good material on the Washington 

Library Coni- 

history of the District and its institutions. Mr. JohnA*^ journals 
Meigs presented three volumes of the records of the 
Washington Library Company, accompanied by the fol- 
lowing interesting letter: 

"WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 17, 1904. 
"DEAR SIR: I was for some years, 1871-1877, Sec- 
retary of the Washington Library co., and had charge 
of the Journals of the Directors of the Association. 
Upon the discontinuance of the meetings and of 
any active interest in the Library affairs the books 
were transferred to the Young Men's Christian Asso- 
ciation by a formal agreement, and by them to the 
Central High School Library. The great number of 
the Directors of the Washington Library Association 
are dead and the Association for years gone into a state 
of desuetude. Desiring to preserve the Journals in a 
safe place I wish to deposit them in the Library of 
Congress for preservation and safe keeping. The pro- 
ceedings are from. April 2, 1811, to May 5, 1877, in 
3 vols., folio, and are of some interest, as showing 
that some effort was made in Washington to work up 
a literary spirit by leading citizens, but it was found 
impossible, after 50 years of effort, to arouse any 
adequate cash interest in the project by citizens, and 
if Mr. Carnegie had not come to the rescue probably 
50 years more would have elapsed before anything 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 

had been done. The collection at one time numbered 
something like 15,000 volumes and contained many 
good books for that period, but would not now be con- 
sidered of much value. 

"Very respectfully

gifts Benjamin H. Latrobe to Charles Willson Peale, on the

tol, and asking for drawings of the bald eagle. 

Mr. William J. Rhees gave a quantity of material bear- 
ing upon the history of the Young Men's Christian As- 
sociation in the District of Columbia. This material is 
largely in the form of clippings from newspapers. 

Mr. J. Henley Smith, of Washington, had added to the 
Thornton papers (described in my report for 1904, p. 46), 
as well as presented papers of another character. Among 
them may be mentioned the commissions issued to Jona- 
than Bayard Smith, of Philadelphia, and the journals or 
daily records of Mrs. William Thornton, who resided in 
Washington for more than sixty years. The journals 
cover this period and constitute an invaluable storehouse 
of social life of the city. 

From Mr. S. D. Hannah, of Boston, were received two 
letters of Gen. U. S. Grant; and a form of apprenticeship, 


Mr. Charles P. Greenough, of Boston, presented to the 

Library some interesting documents. The original of a 
letter, dated March 18, 1766, is signed by 55 of the London 
merchants engaged in trade with the American colonies. 
The original account of John Hancock against the United 
States, October 25, 1777, is interesting for the items and the 
general form of the paper. It is accompanied by a letter 

Gift from C. P. 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 33 

from the Auditor of the Treasury, Joseph Nourse, relating 
to it. 

An attempt was made in the past year to obtain from the state and Ter- 

*- . . ... ritorial procla- 

executives of the various States and Territories copies ot ma twns 
such proclamations as were issued by them. The attempt 
has met with a partial success, as will be seen from an 
examination of the list of accessions (Appendix VII). The 
regular and formal proclamations constitute the most nu- 
merous class, such as Fast day (in New England), Thanks- 
giving, and, more recently, Arbor, Labor, and Bird day. 
They mark the observance of these days of recreation and 
the measure of stress or neglect given to them. Occasional 
proclamations issued on special emergencies are more im- 
portant, and the form in which they are issued is often 
unusual and striking. It will be seen by the list that 
additions have been made to the collection of broadsides in 
the Library. The largest gift was received from Mr. Max 
Lansburgh, consisting of 50 playbills of Washington thea- 
ters, 1874-1876. 

Some natural reluctance to part with family papers use of family 
has been shown by the possessors of such, in the belief *' 
that when deposited in the Library they must become 
accessible to every inquirer. Such a freedom of access 
would be out of the question, and it is only right that 
some judgment should be exercised in permitting en- 
trance to collections. This judgment rests upon two 
factors: one, on the nature or quality of the papers 
themselves; and .secondly, on the object of the investi- 
gator. A collection, on receipt, is examined, and what- 
ever possesses a purely personal quality, not affected with 
a public interest, is set aside to be retained by the 
Library, to be returned to the original possessor of the 
papers, or to be destroyed, as he may elect. Private let- 
ters may be of high historical value, because they describe 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

DIVISION OF soc i a i events and persons in a manner more free than 


use of family could be f ound in other forms of written or printed mate- 


rial. Family correspondence throws more light upon the 
daily life, the relations, and the movements of the writer 
or of his correspondents than could any public or less 
familiar intercourse. The final disposition of such papers 
rests with the donor. The Library lays aside for his 
examination all that may not strictly be suitable to a 
public institution, and the decision is then made what 
shall be done with these manuscripts. In practice it has 
been found that the Library has erred in a too strict 
interpretation of the word "private," and the persons 
from whom the papers were obtained have made no 
objection to the retention of the selected letters and their 
embodiment in the main collection. In the last year only 
one paper was lost to the Library under this system of 

A second safeguard lies in the character of the inquiry, 
in the object of the investigator who would consult these 
collections. A mere list of the students who have made 
use of the papers in the last year, or a list of the volumes 
in process the writers of which have sought and found 
material in the manuscripts in the Library would alone 
suffice to show the care taken to eliminate whatever 
savors of abuse or mere notoriety. It is not the inten- 
tion of the Library to permit its collections to be thus 
exploited, and every precaution is taken to guard against 
it, while leaving access so free as not to prevent the 
satisfaction of every honest and reasonable purpose. It 
is possible, even, that diplomatic records have been ob- 
tained which the public interest demands should remain 
unpublished. The Department of State passes upon such 
a question. The form of a question and the general 
standing of the investigator - are leading factors in deter- 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 35 

mining how far the free use of the manuscripts can be 
extended. It is a pleasure to be able to record that no 
instance of abuse of this confidence has arisen, and no 
complaint has been made against the restrictions imposed. 

When a collection may be deposited in the Library is not 
a question of either time or place. The most recent papers 
are naturally kept from general inspection more rigidly 
than are the collections of manuscripts of the eighteenth 
century. After a century personalities have lost their sting; 
contests, political or personal, have been decided, and the 
sense of injury has become deadened. The questions are 
now historical questions, and the personal character is of 
minor importance. With letters of or concerning men still 
living and still active in public life the precautions just 
described are applied most carefully, and they are as safe 
from misuse and far safer from loss than if they were 
retained in private hands and stored in private houses. 
The Library offers the labor and expense of making the 
examination and selection of papers, arranging and calen- 
daring them, of binding and storing them. From masses 
of unarranged and indigested papers they become by this 
process orderly volumes, and in this state they are placed 
beyond any fear of destruction that inevitably surrounds 
family papers stored in private houses. Furthermore, from 
unusable and inaccessible records they become available for 
history, and thus serve to perpetuate the memory of public 
service and sacrifices to the public good. It is difficult to 
see ho\v greater inducements could be offered to those who, 
possessing family and historical papers, would desire to see 
them where they will be entirely safe and their historical 
value appreciated. 

I now pass to a brief summary of the more important 
manuscripts purchased during the last year. 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 

C r it tenden 

The papers of John J. Crittenden, of Kentucky, contain 
about 2,500 pieces, and were obtained from Mrs. Robert 
H. Crittenden, of Frankfort. The long and distinguished 
career of Crittenden in the public service and his intimacies 
with the men more prominently connected with opposition 
to the Democratic party as represented by Jackson and his 
immediate successors give a peculiar value to these papers, 
for they picture the side of national politics to which the 
large collections of Jackson, Van Buren, and Polk papers 
so fully represent the opposition. The letters from Zachary 
Taylor, Henry Clay, John M. Clayton, and Robert C. 
Winthrop would alone indicate its distinguishing features; 
while the single incident of the compromise measure brought 
forward by Crittenden in 1861, and the correspondence it 
called forth, constitute a chapter of history that describes 
the standing and character of the man, and the true nature 
of the task which he honestly and soberly endeavored to 
perform with inadequate instruments. Much of this cor- 
respondence was used in Mrs. Chapman's " Life of John J. 
Crittenden," but less than one half of the collection 
appeared in the volume. There are many letters, speeches, 
and state papers by Crittenden; and the following list of 
his correspondents, representing series of letters and not 
mere individual specimens, will point out his connections: 

W. S. Archer, Robert J. Breckinridge, George M. Bibb, 
A. T. Burnley, Orlando Brown, George K. Badger, Leslie 
Coombs, Thomas Corwin, Charles Augustus Davis, Thomas 
Kwing, Felix Grundy, Thomas H. Hick, James Harlan,

son, J. P. Kennedy, George Lunt, Abbott Lawrence, Amos

Marshall, Hugh Mercer, C. S. Morehead, S. S. Nicholas, 
John Pendleton, A. Porter, William C. Preston, W. C. 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 37 

Rives, William Schley, Alexander H. Stephens, Winfield 
Scott, C. S. Todd, and Robert Toombs. In addition to 
this correspondence there are some legal opinions by Crit- 
tenden, many of his own letters, land warrants signed by 
Patrick Henry and Beverley Randolph, and some papers 
relating to the boundary line between Kentucky and Ten- 
nessee, Crittenden having been one of the commissioners. 

An important acquisition by purchase was the papers McArthura*d 
of Duncan Me Arthur and William Allen, of Ohio, obtained 
from Mrs. Erne Allen Scott, of Chillicothe, Ohio. McArthur 
was for many years a surveyor in the new territory, an 
eager land purchaser, a member of the State legislature, a 
brigadier-general in the war of 1812, succeeding William 
Henry Harrison to the chief command of the western army, 
a member of Congress, and governor of the State. The 
historical value of the collection is thus threefold: 

(i) As a picture of a new territory rapidly being par- 
celed out to settlers and gradually taking definite geo- 
graphical shape. The hundreds of notes of surveys, plats 
of lands and of districts, land documents, tax sales and 
returns, and other land papers give a full picture of a 
community where land represented the most general 
"commodity," where acres represented almost the only 
form of wealth and the medium of exchange. Claims 
and warrants passed from hand to hand, and the larger 
forms of indebtedness were settled in land. No other 
State than Ohio could afford so early, few could give so 
full a record of such a community. The autographic 
value is slight, but the social value is large, and gives 
to the Library material which covers an unusual subject 
in a thorough manner. It is very probable that as time 
passes this part of the collection will be consulted for 
family and genealogical history, as it is rich in local 
names and descriptions. For legal form and procedure 

38 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

on land questions involving the use or ownership of land, 
the papers will be of service. 

(2) The military papers. Duncan McArthur was active 
as colonel and brigadier- general, and retained his interest 
in military matters for some years after the peace. There 
are a large number of Army returns, reports of officers 
at various posts of the Northwest, and general corre- 
spondence with his superiors at Washington and the sub- 
ordinate officers under his immediate control. General 
orders from the War Department, his own orders, and 
those issued at the different commands are full; and the 
series of letters from Croghan, Cass, Butler, Harrison, 
and many others not only relate events of the campaign, 
but express the hopes and fears of the writers, and give 
the accounts of daily camp routine and personal matters 
that make good historical material. 

(3) The political papers. As a member of Congress, 
McArthur was in close touch with the political leaders 
of Ohio, and after his return to his State he conducted a 
wide correspondence with the public men at Washington 
on national politics and public measures. Many of his 
own letters are included, picturing the social and political 
life in Washington, and written to his wife, express his 
opinions of men and his views on current topics with a 
freedom that add much to the value of the records. A 
Federalist, he favored internal improvements, and the 
State he represented was keenly alive to the importance, 
if not to the necessity, of such improvements upon a large 
scale. Again, the collections (of the strict construction- 
ists) already in the lyibrary, who opposed the idea that 
the Federal Government had the power to undertake 
this policy, are supplemented and explained by the McAr- 
thur papers. It is estimated that there are about 10,000 
papers in this collection. 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 39 

With the Me Arthur papers were obtained the papers of 
William Allen, of Ohio, at one time prominent in the poli- 
tics of that State, and a character of national importance. 
He was a Representative in Congress in 1833 and Senator 
for two terms, 1837-1848. Retiring from public life he did 
not again hold office until elected governor of the State in 
1873. He was one of the leaders in the money discussion 
of the day, and represented the "Ohio idea" of a govern- 
ment unredeemable paper currency. His papers are almost 
entirely confined to the periods of his service as Senator and 
Governor, and number about 1,600 pieces. Some MS. 
speeches and drafts of letters point out his own work, but 
the more important portion of the collection consists of let- 
ters from his correspondents on political matters in Ohio. 
Of local interest are the minutes of meetings and muster 
rolls of the Chillicothe Light Infantry Blues, 1821-1834, f 
which Allen was a member. A number of papers bearing 
upon land surveys and settlement supplement those in the 
Me Arthur collection. 

From Miss Mary W. Taylor, of Washington, was pur- Virginian MSS. 
chased a collection of about i , 200 manuscripts and broad- 
sides of Virginian origin. The manuscripts were largely 
the correspondence of Garrett Minor, of Louisa county, 
who served in the militia in the war of 1812, and David 
Watson who was for some years a member of the Virginia 
assembly. They extend from 1768 to 1821 and include the 
military returns and orders of the war period, personal let- 
ters and papers relating to local legislation. A diary for 
1813, while the writer was in service, and two roster books 
with general orders of David Watson's troop of cavalry for 
the same year are notable pieces, as are the notes of Bishop 
Madison's lectures on natural philosophy at William and 
Mary college (1796), and a ledger of accounts, 1765-1792. 
Of greater value are the 350 Virginia broadsides, compris-

ing war, political, legislative, and executive issues, which 
have become very difficult to obtain, and many of which 
are, in all probability, unique. The original forms of bills 
introduced into the Assembly,, and the printed papers relat- 
ing to the adoption of the Federal Constitution in Virginia 
are particularly serviceable. \ 

Barbados rec- A unique set of books was obtained by the purchase of 


eleven volumes which had belonged to Charles Pinfold, 
Governor of Barbados, 1756-1766. They consist of origi- 
nal papers, transcripts of legislative journals, and printed 
laws prepared for the use of the Governor, and contain 
broadsides and manuscript notes. The period covers 

that of the war with France, and thus has an intimate 

relation with the course of political events in the West 

Indies and on the continent of North America. 
The manuscript volumes are: 

I. Minutes of the President and Council, October 28, 
1735-July 15, 1736; with a list of fees collected in the 
courts and executive offices of the island. 

II. A transcript of the journal of the proceedings of 
the General Assembly of Barbados, August 31, 1756- 
MarchiS, 1765; and of the Committee of public accounts, 
May 17, 1757-December 8, 1763. 

III. Minutes of the Council from August 10, 1756- 
May 27, 1766. 2 volumes. 

IV. Royal orders and instructions, signed by the 
King, issued to Governor Pinfold, March 16, 1756; 
minutes of the meetings of the President and commander 
in chief in council, July 15, i766-May 27, 1767; and 
extracts from the Council books in Barbados, October 
13, 1 64 1 -November 27, 1739. 

V. Letter books of Governor Pinfold, August 14, 
1756-May 25, 1766. 3 volumes. 

VI. Transcript of laws 1761-1766.

What remain of the Papers of Franklin Pierce were Pierce, papers 
obtained from Mr. Kirk D. Pierce, of Hillsboro Bridge, 
N. H., a relative of the President. These papers are 
but a small portion of the original mass, the greater part 
of which was destroyed by fire; but they contain matter 
of interest and not a few letters of value. Of Pierce's 
own writings there are many political letters, some mili- 
tary letters written from Mexico, and some drafts of

state papers. Among his correspondents may be named 
Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edmund Burke, Jefferson Davis, 
Charles O' Conor, Caleb Cushing, and C. G. Atherton. 

In 1901 the Library possessed the papers of no Presi- 
dent of the United States. It now holds the papers of 
Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Van 
Buren, Polk, Pierce, and Johnson. 

^ he correspondence of Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan, 
in 12 volumes, is that of an early collector of Ameri- 
cana, and a writer well known for his bibliographical 
knowledge. The correspondence deals with the rarities 
. in early American books, with the historical material on 
America in European archives, with editions of the 
Bible, and with many matters connected with book gather- 
ing. Among the names to be found in the 2,000 letters 
are: James Lenox, John Carter Brown, George Bancroft, 
John Gilmary Shea, J. Carson Brevoort, George Liver- 
more, William Gowans, Henry C. Murphy, and S. F. 
Haven. There are many letters from William L. Mc- 
Kenzie, the Canadian, whose stormy political career is one 
of the picturesque incidents in the history of the Province. 
Burmese sacred An opportunity was presented to obtain some manu- 


scripts of the sacred writings of Burma. No set of these 
writings was to be found in the United States, and the 
only collection of size was at Brown University, Provi- 
dence, R. I. The opportunity thus offered was taken, 
and through the efforts of the Rev. W. H. S. Hascall, 
of the missionary service in Lower Burma, a very good 
set of the more important of these writings was secured. 
They are ola manuscripts (on palm leaves), and the fol- 
lowing list and explanation, prepared by Mr. Hascall, 
will indicate the nature of these books, their number and 
relations to the general religious literature of British 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 43 

Burma. It has been asserted that the writings of Buddha 
have undergone less change and deterioration in the Bur- 
mese texts than in those of Western India, and are there- 
fore more valuable for the purposes of study. It is a 
matter for congratulation that these examples have been 
obtained, as their value is rapidly increasing in the Hast, 
and good specimens are becoming rarer each year. In 
nearly every instance the cloth wrapper and embroidered 
band accompanied the writing. 

Of the Bidegat (Pitakat) or sacred scriptures of the 
Buddhists there are three series of writings on the say- 
ings of Buddha: Thote (3 volumes), We-nee (5 volumes), 
and Ah-be-dah-ma (7 volumes). In each series are 
to be found: A. The Pali text of the Sayings of Gau- 
tama Buddha; B. The nait-the-ya, or translation of these 
sayings into Burmese; and C. The ah-ta-ga-ta's, or in- 
spired commentaries on the original Pali text, composed 
by Rahandas, or beings about to attain Neikban or Nir- 
vana. In the Thote series there is a fourth division, D, 
of Te-kas, commentaries supplementary to those of the 
Rahandas, and composed by less exalted beings. The 

Library possesses the following: 


I. A. Thote the let kon.

As part of the same collection were obtained three ex- 
amples of the Kamawa, or ordination service of the priests, 
one on wood and one on a composition metal which con- 
tains silver. The third is a very beautiful and old speci- 
men of the service on strips of ivory with the ancient 
round Pali text in heavy lacquer. 

It will probably be long before a large and important col- 
lection of Orientalia can be obtained, but the foundations 
are being laid, and the Rockhill gifts with these Burmese 
manuscripts are notable beginnings. 

A number of broadsides have been obtained and a large 
quantity have been transferred to the Division from the 
general collections. A list of the more important acquisi- 
tions is to be found in Appendix VII. The most valuable 
belong to the colonial and revolutionary periods. The 
most curious were found in a file of Philippine newspapers, 
purchased in New York, and comprised thirty- two of the 
orders, decrees, and proclamations issued b}^ Aguinaldo and 
his opponents. This fortunate find deserves to be listed: 

1898. June i. Order of Aguinaldo for punishment of trea- 
son and spies. In Spanish and Tagalog.

Report of the Librarian of Congress 

MSS. trans- Under the Executive order of March 9, 1901 (see Report, 

ferred from the 

Department 0/1903, p. 24), the papers of Thomas Jefferson and of James 
Madison have been transferred from the Department of 
State to the Library of Congress. The Jefferson collection 
was transferred as a whole; some records of the Constitu- 
tional Convention of 1787 were retained from the Madison 
collection. The Executive order has thus been complied 
with, and as a matter of record a list is given of the collec- 
tions transferred under its operation: 

1. Papers of the Continental Congress (except the 

diplomatic or foreign correspondence), 385 

2. Papers of George Washington, 330 volumes, and 

many loose papers. 

3. Papers of Thomas Jefferson, 172 volumes. 

4. Papers of James Madison, 84 volumes. 

5. Papers of James Monroe, 22 volumes. 

6. The Stevens collection of Benjamin Franklin 

papers, 14 volumes. 

7. Papers of Alexander Hamilton, 65 volumes. 

The transfer has been of advantage, as three of the 
collections have gained largely by additions. The Library 
already possessed a good number of Washington papers, 
some 2,000 Jefferson papers, and much obtained from 
the papers of Mrs. Madison. All of these collections, 
the importance of which can hardly be overestimated 
from the standpoint of history, are now in a most favor- 
able situation in that they can grow by additions as 
opportunity offers. The Library is not in a position to 
compete in the open market for manuscripts, nor will its 
funds permit large expenditures in that line of purchases. 
For these reasons it has lost many opportunities in the 
past to obtain good material, and will undoubtedly be at 
some disadvantage in the future. As yet it can not buy, 
as do the long established and richly stored libraries of 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 49 

Europe, such rarities as they need, and for which their 
funds permit large prices, because their accumulations 
leave these funds comparatively free. The demands upon 
the Library of Congress from many directions leave little 
or nothing for obtaining the really desirable and increas- 
ingly rare Americana, and the same limitations restrict 
the purchase of manuscripts. Every fair offer is consid- 
ered, but it is a matter of regret that every offer does not 
come within the competence of the Library. 

Nine volumes of early records of the Post Office in the 
United States were deposited in the Library by the Auditor 
of the Post Office department. They show the simple 
beginnings of a great governmental activity. 

In my report for 1904 I described the status of the Span- Spanish 

ish papers sent to the Library from New Mexico. Learn- n 
ing of a quantity of similar records in the office of the 
United States surveyor general in Tallahassee, Fla., the 
Department of the Interior was asked if there were any 
obstacles to depositing them in the Library for arrangement 

and safe keeping. The Department not only accepted the 

suggestion, but further stated that it would be of public 
advantage if the deposit were made a permanent one, pro- 
viding always that no papers relating to land titles should 
be so retained. Under this condition the papers were sent 
to the Library, and the permanent deposit will permit the 
institution to treat it in the same manner as its other collec- 
tions are treated before they are made available for historical 
ends. The task of arranging, repairing, mounting, index- 
ing, and binding will be undertaken in due season. The 
papers number 62,224 pieces, with some volumes bound 
under the Spanish rule. The number of papers in the vol- 
umes can hardly be determined as they now are, as the 
polilla busily bored through and through an entire volume, 
and even the parchment covers, until a sheet looks like a 

50 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

bit of lace work. The damage thus done is in some cases 
irreparable, and forcibly illustrates the risks and dangers 
attending the care and preservation of manuscripts in semi- 
tropical or tropical climates where a rainy season and heat 
favor the development of these destructive pests. 

The nature of this collection of Spanish documents may 
be seen from the following selected list, taken from the 
labels of the bundles, of which there were 372 in all: 

1. Correspondence with British authorities. 

2. Councils of war, royal regulations and orders, etc. 

3. Documents of the delivery of East Florida to the 

United States. 

4. Embargo and revolution of 1795. 

5. Indian presents. 

6. Louisiana, Pensacola, Apalache, and Indians. 

7. Memorials and concessions. 

8. Negro titles, runaways, etc. 

9. Oaths of allegiance. 

10. Plans of fortifications and public buildings. 

11. Proclamations, edicts, etc. 

12. Secret correspondence of Captain- General, and a 

large quantity of the correspondence of the 
Captain General with the home government, the 
Viceroy of Mexico, and his subordinate officers. 

Mention should also be made of a copy of a ' ' Historia 
de las Islas Marianas desde llegada de los Espanoles hasta 
hoy, 15 Mayo, 1870," written by Filipa Maria de la Corte 
y Ruano Calderon. This was received from Commander 
George L,. Dyer, U. S. Navy, commander of Guam.

or past handling. The use of paper (much employed 
about 1830-1840), which in time becomes so brittle as 
to forbid so much as lifting a sheet, imposes upon the 
Library more time and expense than are demanded by 
the strong, handmade papers of the sixteenth and seven- 
teenth centuries. An entire volume of the early commer- 
cial correspondence of George Washington, containing 150 
large folio leaves, was found to be breaking, and each 
page was covered with crepeline to save it from further 
damage. In addition to the repairs of manuscripts there 
have been mounted for binding 1,627 songs, Northern 
and Confederate a collection of local and personal inter- 
est. Good progress has been made in mounting the Pa- 
pers of the Continental Congress, and an additional volume 
has been prepared from certain unarranged documents, 
being the oaths of allegiance taken by the civil officers 
of the Continental Congress an invaluable guide for judg- 
ing the handwriting of the papers emanating from that 
body. The credentials of the delegates to the Congress 
are also being mounted. The Belcher- Waldron letters 
(principally drafts) are ready for binding. In each case 
the task of the repairer was exacting, but the final form 
of the papers fully justifies the time and labor expended 
upon them. 

The publications of the Division in the past year were DIVISION OF 


confined to the issue of the Journals of the Continental Publications 
Congress for 1775, in two volumes, and two calendars. 
The auction price obtained for the former editions of the 
Journals (the originals, 1774-1789, bringing from $30 to 
$68, the Folwell edition, from $16 to $30, and the reprint 
from $8 to $14); the increasing rarity of sets (hardly a 
dozen sets being recorded in the sales of the last twenty 
years), and the notorious incompleteness and inaccuracy 
of these earlier editions, pointed to the necessity for a new, 

52 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

full, and collated text, based upon the original records. 
The matter was explained in my report for 1904 (p. 69), 
and the issue of three volumes has proved the opportunity 
for a public service. The size of the edition was limited 
to one that could be covered by the general allotment 
for printing for the Library, and the distribution made was 
intended to place the volumes where they would be most 
accessible for students and investigators. After sending 
a copy to each Senator and Representative and to each of 
the leading public and institutional libraries in the United 
States, and a lesser number abroad, a part of the edition 
was placed for sale with the Superintendent of Public 
Documents in order that he might supply those who could 
make use of the work and whose claims for a free copy 
could not be met by the Library. More than 150 sets 
have already been disposed of through that agency. 

Calendar of The Calendar of the Vernon- Wager papers, prepared by 

}'ernon -Wager 

papers Mr. John C. Fitzpatrick, was issued during the last year. 

This describes an important collection relating to British 
naval operations in the West Indies, and containing docu- 
ments and letters from 1654 to 1753, with some papers 
relating to the ^expulsion of the Acadians and to military 
matters in Canada and Virginia. Obtained by Peter Force 
from the library of George Chalmers, whose services in 
preserving historical material on colonial administration in 
America always call for praise, these papers are now for 
the first time made available for historical purposes. The 
volume contains facsimile reproductions of two letters of 
Admiral Charles Wager and Vice Admiral Edward Vernon, 
and of Wager's plan for an attack on Manila, 1739. 
Chronological There was also issued a Chronological List of the Papers 

papers ^ James Monroe, prepared by Mr. Wilmer Ross Leech. 

The larger part of these papers was transferred from the 
Department of State; but the list includes also such other

Monroe manuscripts as are to be found in the various col- 
lections in the Library of Congress. It supplements the 
alphabetical calendar issued by the Department of State, by 
enabling the student to consult readily the documents cov- 
ering a certain year or a period of time. The journal kept 
by Monroe during the negotiations for the purchase of 
Louisiana in 1803 was reproduced in facsimile for this vol- 
ume as the document of highest interest at this particular

been completed and is now in the hands of the printer. 
The listing of the Andrew Jackson papers is progressing as 
rapidly as can be expected, but much remains to be done. 
Brief calendars have also been prepared of the Edward 
Preble, the John M. Clayton, and the Franklin Pierce col- 
lections. Some progress has been made toward such a cal- 
endar of the John Fitch, the Caleb B. Smith, and the naval 
papers (including two volumes of letters of John Paul 
Jones) in the Papers of the Continental Congress. A cal- 
endar is well in hand of the correspondence between Gen- 
eral Washington and the Continental Congress. This will 
cover one of the most interesting as well as valuable corre- 
spondences of the Revolution, including, as it does, many 
inclosures, letters, documents, petitions, and resolutions of 
the Congress. The number of main entries in this calendar 
made to June 30, 1905, is 3,200, which cover the letters 
from Washington and their inclosures, and part of the 
replies. The total number of entries required will be about 
5,000, and the work will probably be completed in the cur- 
rent year.

offers a fitting opportunity to explain the methods. The 
Division has issued two most elaborate calendars of mate-

CALENDARS: Y [ a \ j n jj- s possession, that of the Washington papers, igoi, 

Method of com- 
pilation and that of John Paul Jones, 1903. The Jones calendar 

contained 883 entries and occupied the labor of an expert 
two full years to complete, allowance being made for 
interruptions. The Washington list demanded nearly the 
same amount of time and labor. The cost of calendaring 
was thus excessive, and if applied generally would fre- 
quently exceed the value of the collection treated. Nor 
has experience shown the advantage of such minute 
descriptions of documents, the entry in the calendar some- 
times containing more words than the document itself. 
The investigator can never be satisfied with any summary 
of contents, but must refer to the original letter, and 
nothing short of a full publication can meet his needs. 
In place of a full calendar a partial one is now made, in 
which only the leading names and subjects are noted. 
The names of the writer and of the person to whom writ- 
ten, the place and time of writing, and a brief reference 
to the matter or contents of the paper these entries are 
sufficient to serve as a general guide to the nature of the 
collection. The time saved is of importance, a few months 
sufficing for the preparation of such a partial calendar, 
and three or four collections can be made available within 
the same time as was required formerly by one collection. 
In the arrangement of collections the progress has been 
as follows: The Andrew Johnson, Salmon P. Chase, and 
Neil Jamieson collections have been arranged chronologic- 
ally, and, in proper manila jackets, are open to investiga- 
tors. The Crittenden and McArthur papers are ready for 
this arrangement, and the new Van Buren papers are almost 
ready for handling. As the letters are received, as a rule, 
folded or in the original coverings, they must be first opened 
and pressed before they can be arranged. The usual num- 
ber of inclosures, of undated letters and papers, of news- 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 55 

paper clippings and fragments, demand much time and entail 
much trouble and research. 

Announcement was made in my last report (p. 70) of an Records of the 

Virginia Com- 

important undertaking in the transcribing and editing for/aj> 
publication of the Records of the Virginia Company of 
London. Much labor has been expended upon it, and, as 
the transcription is ready for the press, an opportunity will, 
I hope, be found for printing during the current year this 
most important record of one of the earliest settlements of 
the English in America. The introduction and a very full 
bibliography have been prepared and are in type, and will 
prove of the highest utility in describing the important docu- 
ments of the Company's career, their various forms or ver- 
sions, their location in public and private collections, and 
their relations to the Company and the general history of 
the time. More than 800 separate titles are thus fully de- 
scribed, and they apply to the period 1600 to 1626, or only 
about a quarter of a century. The list must be regarded as 
one of the most detailed and extensive examples of bibliog- 
raphy ever undertaken in this country, and to the historian 
and collector (and libraries are now the great collectors) 
will prove an invaluable guide. 

The English archives proved unexpectedly rich in 
material throwing light upon the proceedings of the Com- 
pany and the relations of the shareholders or subscribers 
to the undertaking, and many new letters, documents,' 
accounts, and memoranda were discovered by Miss Susan 
M. Kingsbury, under whose editing the volumes will be 
printed. The courteous attention to her wishes in behalf 
of the Library shown by the authorities of the Public 
Record office, the British Museum, the Bodleian library, 
and Cambridge University library are gratefully acknowl- 
edged, and, by the free access to their rich stores of 
printed and manuscript material, the importance of the 
WB 1905 5 

56 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

publication was recognized and its greater completeness 
assured. By transcripts and by photographic reproduc- 
tion the Library of Congress has added to its collections 
what, was important for the particular purpose of the 
publication of these records, and it is thus very rich in 
what relates to the earliest years of Virginian history. 
To show that the printed material is not neglected I 
may note in passing the acquisition of the following very 
rare early tracts relating to Virginia: 

A Trve and sincere declaration of the purpose and 
ends of the plantation begun in Virginia. London, 

The New life of Virginea. London, 1612. 

His Maiesties Graciovs letter to the Earle of Sovth- 
Hampton, . . . commanding the present setting vp of 
silke works, and planting of vines in Virginia. London , 

Virgo Triumphans: or, Virginia richly and truly 
valued. London, 1650. 

Transcripts in this connection maybe mentioned another undertaking 

from European 

archives of the Library. On the early history of the United States, 

when they were colonial possessions of various European 
states, the records available in this country are few in num- 
ber, not, consecutive or complete in time, and so scattered 
as to make reference difficult and costly and an advanta- 
geous use in writing history almost impossible. The Library 
receives many demands for these early records from those 
interested, and it has been obliged to admit its inability to 
supply what was needed or even to indicate, save in very 
general terms, the probable location of the records which 
would give the required information. In European archives 
these records exist, and, so far as the proceedings of public 
bodies (council and legislature) are concerned, are quite 
complete. The correspondence of governors and the officers 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 57 

of the Crown, the records of courts and inquisitions, the 
returns of trade and revenue, and the descriptions of the 
colonies and their resources, which were made from time to 
time, supplement the legislative acts, and these may them- 
selves be explained and augmented by the great mass of 
miscellaneous papers which have, by one means or another, 
found a place in the public records. All of this material is 
the raw material of our colonial history. 

It is eminently desirable to have transcripts of the more 
important of these papers in some place of deposit in the 
United States. Each State might secure what is of value 
to its own history, but this would involve much duplication, 
a vastly greater expense, and in the end a marked absence 
of completeness, as well as a want of uniformity in methods 
of transcription and of publication. This manner of obtain- 
ing copies can be satisfactory neither on the score of accu- 
racy nor on that of expense. Many copyists and many 
copies of the same document offer every opportunity for 
error, and the mere task of selecting what should be copied 
demands a knowledge and judgment difficult to obtain when 
confined to the records of one State or Colony, but more 
easily and certainly exercised when permitted to labor for a 
general purpose and on the general mass of records. When 
obtained by the States, the various transcripts would be 
kept in many widely separated places, and would not be 
available for students. In meeting the problem of the 
extent to which the Library of Congress could undertake 
to make good the defects of the existing methods, I have 
sought the advice and cooperation of the Bureau of histor- 
ical research of the Carnegie Institution and of the council 
of the American Historical association. After careful con- 
sideration it was determined to make a beginning in the 
English archives, by obtaining transcripts from the British

from European 


on von Closen 

The docu- 

ments to be so copied were selected by Prof. Charles M. 
Andrews, of Bryn Mawr, who has for some years made a 
special study of American records in the British archives, 
and the actual work of transcription was given to Messrs. 
B. F. Stevens and Brown, who have long been engaged in 
such labors and to whose knowledge and courtes}^ many 
writers and students in the United States are under obli- 
gations. About five volumes of transcripts have been 
received, and the manner of performance has been entirely 
satisfactory. By continuing to obtain some volumes each 
year the Library will in a few years be in possession of 
transcripts of a large number of these valuable records and 
in a form which will be available to the investigator. The 
advantages attained are: the employment of skilled copyists 
who have long been engaged in this particular kind of 
work; supervision by a responsible firm, whose interest in 
the records has been of long standing; uniformity of 
methods of transcription; absence of duplication; and the 
concentration of all this material in one depository, where 
are also to be found the means of cataloguing and preserving 
it. The public utility of this work is beyond any question, 
and there remained to be determined only the details of an 
intelligent system of operation. In connection with this 
may be mentioned a list of transcripts from British records 
in American libraries now being prepared by the Bureau 
of historical research of the Carnegie Institution. This 
list will serve as a guide to this Library in directing the 
operations of its copyists. 

Through the efforts of Mr. Clarence Winthrop Bowen, 
the loan of a collection of records of Baron von Closen, 
aide de camp to Rochambeau during his campaign in 
America (1780-1781), was obtained to be shown at St. 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 59 

Louis as part of the exhibit of the Library of Congress. 
Permission to transcribe the Journal of von Closen for the 
years 1780-1783, covering his stay in the United States 
and his visit to the West Indies, was courteously given 
by the present owner, Baron von Closen Gunderrode," of 
Castle Gern, near Engelfulden, Bavaria, and transcripts in 
two volumes were made. 

The manuscripts exhibited at St. Louis last year were exhibit of 


not sent to the Portland Exposition, but a new selection 
of documents was made, sufficient to give examples of 
the more notable collections and of the methods of repair- 
ing applied. The contents of the exhibition cases for 
manuscripts in the Library have been entirely changed 
since January to indicate the growing richness of the 
historical records in the collections. To each of the fol- 
lowing collections a large case has been devoted: Wash- 
ington, Jefferson, Continental Congress, Jackson, Van 
Buren. Polk, Johnson, Revolutionary broadsides, and papers 
relating to the framing and adoption of the Federal Con- 
stitution. Smaller cases are devoted to Franklin, John 
Fitch, Monroe, Orderly books of the Revolution, Lincoln, 
Chase, Pierce, the Adamses, John Paul Jones, Thornton, 
American authors (Field collection), and relics of the 
Southern Confederacy. This exhibition can not but exer- 
cise an educational influence and has attracted much atten- 
tion by the high quality of the material shown. It is 
gratifying to know that this material is but a selection, 
and but indifferently represents the far greater wealth of 
historical records in the Division of Manuscripts of the

of 72 maps, formed by Lord Howe, commander of the 
English fleet in America in 1776-1777, consisting of 
manuscript maps and tracings of various places on the 
American coast, the West Indies, and the Philippines. In 
the collection there are found several maps which were 
probably used by Lord Howe in his naval operations during 
the American Revolution. The maps having to do with 
the Revolution are seven in number, namely: 

A sketch of the navigation from Swan pt. to the 
river Elk at the head of Chesapeak bay. 1777. 
A draught of Delaware Bay. [1775?] 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 61 

Plan of part of the river Delaware from Chester to 
Philadelphia in which is mark'd the position of his 
majesty's ships on the i5th of November 1777. 

Soundings of the bar of Sandy Hook at low water. 

[A map of New Jersey extending from Sandy Hook 
to Little Egg harbour. 1770?] 

Part of Long Island and the coast eastward to the 
shoals of Nantucket. [1775?] 

Buzzards bay and shoals of Nantucket. [By Lieut. 
Knight. 1778.] 

The maps relating to the Philippines include two illus- 
trating the British capture of Manila, 1762. 

A detailed list and description of the collection is given 
in Appendix VIII of this report. 

Other acquisitions worthy of special note are Nichelson's 
Draught of the Great Bay of Manila, [1776?]; Longworth's 
Plan of the city of New York, 1804; two maps by Visscher, 
Verovering vande silver vloot inde bay Matanca, 1628, and 
[Matanzas bay] ; Paz, Atlas geografico e historico de la 
republica de Colombia, 1889; Ortelius, Theatre de 1'vnivers, 
1598; Wit, Atlas [1675?]; Sanson, Atlas nouveav, 2 vols., 
1692-96; a collection of Mexican admiralty charts, 1824; 
Ptolemy's Geographia, 1522, Tabulae geographicae, 1578. 

The Library has the following editions of Ptolemy: 1475, 
1480?, 1486, 1490, 1508, 1511, 1513, 1522, 1525, 1535, 1540, 
1541, 1542, 1545, 1547, 1552, 1561, 1562, 1574, 1578, 1584, 
J 596, 1597, 1598, 1599, 1605, 1617, 1619, 1620, 1695, 1730. 

The editions to be acquired are those of: 1478, 1462 
[1482?], 1482, 1507, 1514, 1520, 1564, 1608. 

There is a gradual decrease each year in the number of 
atlases purchased, as the Library collection is already so 
extensive that it is becoming the exception to find desired 
material in the ordinary sale catalogue. 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

DIVISION OF The only publication issued from this Division during: 


Publication the year has been ' ' The Kohl collection (now in the 
Library of Congress) of maps relating to America. By 
Justin Winsor. A reprint of bibliographical contribution 
number 19 of the Library of Harvard University. With 
index." Since its transfer to the Library of Congress, 
this collection has been used so extensively by students 
that a reprint, with complete index, of Dr. Winsor 's 
description was deemed advisable for use in this connec- 
tion and as a reference work for historical purposes. 

A manuscript reference list has been made of all the 
ordnance survey sheets of Great Britain. 

Of publications in preparation the most important is the 
List of Atlases in the Library of Congress. For accuracy 
this list requires a care in examination of the material not 
reducible by reference to existing published sources of 
information. As a rule the date of publication is not 
given. Inserted maps, foreign to the publication, are con- 
tinually found, rendering copious descriptive notes very nec- 
essary. For example, several unique water color views of 
Porto Rico, made in 1824, were recently found in an old 
atlas of maps published by the Spanish Government. 
Descriptive notes are especially necessary in connection 
with American maps as, owing to continual vandalism, it 
will soon be almost impossible to find a perfect atlas 
in the market. Such detail is in the first instance expen- 
sive; but the pecuniary saving to the Library ultimately 
effected by it is shown daily. 

There is in preparation a list of manuscript maps relat- 
ing to America, having special reference to the early 
Indian wars and the War of the Revolution. A new edi- 
tion of the "List of Works Relating to Cartography," 
compiled by the Chief of the Division, and first issued 
in 1901, has been greatly advanced towards completion.

This does not include the accessions to class MT (musical 
instruction) numbering 1,447 volumes and pieces, of which 
348 were purchased. This section now contains a total of 
7,722 volumes and pieces. 

The Division of Music has also in its custody the 

Library's collection of literature of music. Inclusive of 

the accessions of the past fiscal year (1,050 volumes and 
pamphlets, of which 819 by purchase) this collection now 
comprises 5,783 volumes and pamphlets. 

The grand total of volumes, pamphlets, and pieces in 
custody of the Division of Music on July i, 1905, num-

The accessions to class M (Music) have strengthened to 
a very notable degree the collection of compositions by 
eminent composers of the last fifty years (e. g. , Chaikovskii, 
Liszt, Brahms, Bruckner, Cesar Franck, Dvorak, d'Indy, 
Debussy, Richard Strauss, and others). The collection of 
full scores of operas has been further developed, and not a 
few rare pieces have been added to the collection of Ameri- 
cana. Among these last the autograph score of Edward 
MacDowell's Indian Suite, presented to the Library by 
the composer, and four autograph sonatas for pianoforte 

64 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

by Alexander Reinagle, presented to the Library by his 
grandson, Mr. Lewis J. Davis, deserve particular mention. 

In the field of the literature and theory of music consid- 
erable attention has been paid to material published before 
1800. Various other gaps have been filled, and the im- 
portant current literature has not been neglected. On the 
whole, the advance made during the past fiscal year has 
contributed perceptibly to the development of the Division 
of Music 011 a large and systematic scale. 

The usual list of accessions is omitted from this report, 
as the reference lists to be published in the near future 
will sufficiently represent the new acquisitions. 

The work of reclassifying the collections in the Division 
of Music is not quite completed, about one third in section 
MT and one eighth in M remaining unclassified. Prepara- 
tions are being made to recatalogue the sections of litera- 
ture and theory of music. The bulk of the music remains 
still uncatalogued; but preparations are being made to 
catalogue temporarily the more important classes. 
Use of Music The total number of readers during the past fiscal year 


was 3,444. The total number of volumes and pieces sup- 
plied was 13,404 (music, 8,534; literature of music, 3,237; 
instruction, 1,633). ^ n 1904, the Division of Music supplied 
11,776 volumes, etc., to 3,459 readers. By way of com- 
parison, the chief of the Division notes from the report of 
1904 of the Musik Bibliothek Peters, in Leipzig, that that 
excellent institution was visited in 1904 by 4,068 readers, 
who consulted 11,673 volumes. 

As yet no publications have issued from this Division. 
A reference list of our collection of full scores of operas, 
now remarkable, may be printed during the coming year. 
Prior to his entrance upon service with us, the Chief of the 
Division, Mr. Sonneck, compiled a bio-bibliographical list of 
American composers prior to 1800. Representing careful 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 65 

and laborious research which utilized all accessible collec- 
tions, in a field heretofore practically ignored, this list is a 
valuable contribution to the literature of American bibliog- 
raphy and to the record of American achievement in an art 
important to civilization. It would have formed a suitable 
publication of the Library. The depletion of the Library's 
allotment for printing prevented us from undertaking it last 
year; but it has now been issued at the expense of its 
author as a private publication. Mr. Sonneck recommends 
that a "union list" (short title) of music and books on 
music, published or in manuscript before 1800, and still 
extant in America, be undertaken by the Library in coop- 
eration with other institutions having collections.

cographie du Louvre, received two years ago, which rep- 
resents a correspondingly interesting and instructive 
undertaking on the part of the French Government. 

Interesting collections of photographs, representing in- 
dustries, libraries, and universities (204 prints) in France 
were received from the Government of France and sim- 
ilar photographs (88 prints) from the Government of the 
Argentine Republic. They were formerly on exhibition 
at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. 

DIVISION OF An unusual addition is that of a collection of 80 sheets 
of rubbings from Chinese monuments, collected by Mr. 
Bayley Willis, of the United States Geological Survey, 
while carrying on geological investigations in China. 

The chief of the Division, Mr. Parsons, gave a valuable 
collection of 515 etchings, by Callot and Delia Bella. 

The purchases of prints during the year have been 
limited to the following collections, viz: (a) Two hun- 
dred Arundel Society prints; (J) 2,000 photographic por- 
traits of celebrated Americans (taken from the Brady 
negatives); (<?) a collection formed by Mr. William Eleroy 
Curtis, illustrative of the life and activities of Christopher 
Columbus. It includes among its 1,700 items, photo- 
graphic views of the various places associated with Co- 
lumbus, and various portraits. 

The Gardiner Greene Hubbard Catalog, descriptive of 
the collection of prints presented to the Library of Con- 
gress, was published in April, 1905, in an edition of 500 
handmade and 1,000 antique paper copies. The volume 
consists of 540 pages, with an etched portrait of Mr. Hub- 
bard, his book plate, and ten reproductions of rare prints. 
The arrangement of the Catalog is as follows: Prefatory 
note, the gift, sketch of Gardiner Greene Hubbard, abbre- 
viations and authorities, catalogue of engravers (alpha- 
betically arranged), original drawings, index of engravers 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 67 

(chronologically arranged by schools), index of artists, 
portrait index, list of authorities, additions and corrections. 

The paper, type, and general form are excellent, making 
unquestionably the best piece of work the Government 
Printing Office has achieved. As the edition issued was 
a small one, the general distribution has been limited to 
museums, print collections, and libraries containing over 
200,000 volumes. A few copies, however, are for sale 
by- the Superintendent of Documents at cost, and up to 
July i, 41 copies had been sold. 

The prints, numbering 2,707, were received in port- 
folios from Mrs. Hubbard. They were classified alpha- 
betically according to engravers and arranged under their 
proper schools. The prints were then identified and 
cards written, giving as many authentic references as 
possible. One great difficulty always experienced in a 
catalogue of this kind is the many forms of the same 
name. Modern research has done much to confuse col- 
lectors, and it is hard sometimes to decide which is the 
proper form. The evidence was very carefully sifted in 
each case, and the form was determined by the majority 
of authorities. Many of the experts have not accepted 
the latest discovery of a different spelling, and even, in 
some cases, a different name, for some comparatively 
well-known engraver. 

In some cases, as Durer and Ryn (Rembrandt), there are 
references to from five to eight authorities. Over 12,000 
references to authorities are given in the Catalog. 

When a print had the title, this was copied exactly; 
but when there was no indication of the subject, this was 
supplied from the best book of reference, and usually in 
French, this being the diplomatic language of print text- 
books. As the Catalog is intended particularly for insti

The Catalog has received cordial recognition for its con- 
tents and enthusiastic praise for its form. The latter has 
contained a note of surprise that a publication so artistic 
should appear as a Government "document." It might 
be expected from the Grolier Club, but scarcely from the 
Government Printing Office. Our own experience with the 
Government Printing Office proves that it welcomes oppor- 
tunity to do superior work, and does it, upon proper speci- 
fication. The Hubbard Catalog and the "Journals of the 
Continental Congress" would require 116 apology from the 
most expert of private printers. 
DIVISION OF On account of the construction of the stack in the south 


Exhibitions curtain, the reading room of the Division was moved tem- 
porarily into the southwest pavilion, necessitating the 
removal of the cases containing the Diirer engravings into 
the main hall. 

A collection of mezzotint portraits of celebrated men, 
women, and children of the sixteenth, seventeenth, eight- 
eenth, and nineteenth centuries was exhibited in the west- 
south gallery. It was made up from the prints lent by 
Mrs. T. Harrison Garrett and Mr. George Lothrop Brad- 
ley, and from the Gardiner Greene Hubbard collection. 
The prints number about 400, and give an interesting illus- 
tration of portraiture for the last four hundred years. 

The Japanese prints and Chinese paintings have not 
been changed. An exhibition of books, maps, and news- 
papers relating to the Oregon question and settlement 
of the West and Northwest has been placed in the cases 
devoted to books in the west-north gallery. 

An interesting feature is a large collection of pam- 
phlets containing speeches delivered in Congress on the 
Oregon settlement. The most important were added to

Many sets of important trade publications are approaching 
completeness largely through the efforts of the publishers. 
The 165 added subscriptions of the year have strength- 
ened the collections of foreign serials in nearly every class 
of literature represented in the Library, but mainly that 
of law, which heretofore has not had a representative 
selection of the current legal literature of foreign coun- 
tries. The increase through the Smithsonian Deposit 
represents for the most part publications of foreign scien- 
tific societies, received by the Institution in exchange for 
its publications. Accessions through the Copyright Office 
represent the new ventures of the year in periodical lit- 
erature, many of which will have, no doubt, only an 
ephemeral existence. 

Accessions to the main collections of the Library from 
the Periodical Division, by completion for binding, aggre-

Cooperation between the Library of Congress and other Exchanges of 


libraries in the work of exchanging duplicates has been 
advantageous especially to this Library, the year showing 
the receipt of 736 volumes and 19,367 numbers and the dis- 
tribution in return therefor of 660 volumes and 12,367 num- 
bers. By this means 34 sets of periodicals were completed. 
Many valuable journals published in England and America 
during the eighteenth century have been added to the 
Library's already noteworthy collection. They include one 
lot of about 300 papers published in London during the 
period 1711 to 1729; and 116 numbers of the " Mercurius 
Politicus " (1645-1660), a weekly summary of events in 
Great Britain and Continental Europe. In American his- 
tory an important acquisition is a file of the Maryland 
Journal for 1790, the year in which occurred the spirited 
sectional contest for the location of the Nation's Capital, 
which resulted in the selection of the present site on the 
Potomac. , 


Effort has been continued to perfect the files of serial 
publications, sadly imperfect at the time of their transfer 
from the Capitol in 1897. Volumes and parts undoubt- 
edly received had disappeared; others, including entire 
files, had been withdrawn by the Smithsonian itself after 
the original deposit; still others, received by the Smith- 
sonian, had been withheld, pending a better ability on the 
part of the Library to handle them efficiently. During 
the past six years the material thus withdrawn or with- 
held, so far as it could be identified, has been sent up 
to the Library and consolidated with the Deposit, even 
though certain of it has again to be withdrawn for cur- 
rent use by the scientists at the Institution. The replace- 
ment of volumes and parts actually missing has been a 
much more difficult and laborious matter. Applications

Dep a rtmentai received by the Smithsonian constituting its "library" was 


to be deposited in the Library of Congress, and preserved 
there. Included in such are a number of serials in depart- 
ments of literature which form specialties of certain de- 
partment or bureau libraries within the District, and are, 
for this reason in general, avoided by the Library of Con- 
gress. Particularly is this true of Agriculture and of 
Medicine. During a brief period prior to 1897 the med- 
ical serials received by the Smithsonian were, I understand, 
diverted to the library of the Surgeon General's Office. 
The purpose then was to save them from the hazards at the 
Capitol. I believe that a larger permanent policy should 
direct the resumption of this practice and its extension to 
at least one other department of literature Agriculture. 
There should perhaps be excepted ( i ) the publications of 
governments and of societies, and (2) a selected number 
of the most important journals, i. e., those which record 
the progress of these sciences in their larger aspects, espe- 
cially, also, their progress within the United States, and 
those which contain the more scientific discussions of under- 
lying theory and principle. Agriculture and Medicine are 
special fields of literature. The libraries of the Agricul- 
tural Department and of the Surgeon General's Office have 
already large collections in them, the latter a preeminent 
collection. They are extremely efficient. They also are 
government libraries, within the District, liberally adminis- 
tered. Efficiency, as well as economy, should dictate the 
concentration within them of highly specialized material 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 73 

within their special scope; and the avoidance of duplication 
of such material within the Library of Congress. I have 
recommended -this view to the authorities of the Smith- 

I favor an extension of this policy to material of like 
nature received by the Library of Congress from other 
sources, particularly copyright; and shall recommend to the 
Committee on the Library the transfer to these special 
libraries of the ' ' second copies ' ' of copyrighted articles not 
required for the uses of the Library of Congress. I favor 
also the transfer to the Public Library of the District 
also a government library, one half of the expense of 
which is borne by the Federal Treasury of any dupli- 
cates in the Library of Congress of works in general lit- 
erature which are no longer needed for its direct service. 
From the Department and Bureau libraries such trans- 
fers have already been authorized by Congress. In the 
case of the Library of Congress the power to authorize 
them is by the Revised Statutes vested in the Committee 
on the Library. 


The total number of volumes bound during the year was 
30,817, as against 28,174 during the year preceding. Of 
these 20,214 were handled at the branch bindery in the 
Library building. 


The total number of volumes catalogued during the last Cataloguing 
fiscal year amounted to 111,373. In addition 1,792 parts of 
volumes were added on the serial record of the Catalogue 
Division, and 5,862 volumes were, after careful comparison, 
rejected as duplicates. This is an increase of 13,513 vol- 
umes over last year, when 97,860 volumes were catalogued. 
This increase may be accounted for (a) by the large num- 

74 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

ber of volumes of serial publications which are now added 
to only one record; (3) by the modification of rules govern- 
ing recataloguing which went into effect July i, 1904. On 
the other hand, the subjects covered were in the main as 
difficult as those of the preceding year and a larger propor- 
tion of the regular accessions required full subject entries. 

The year shows once more an increase in the total num- 
ber of cards filed in all catalogue records of this Division: 
627, 557> as against 577 ,427 in 1903-4; and 511,242 in 
1902-3. This takes no account of cards received from the 
New York Public, John Crerar, Harvard, Boston Public, 
U. S. Department of Agriculture, and Geological Survey 
libraries, which are stamped and filed as soon as possible 
after their receipt. The file of index cards to Experiment 
station literature is also kept up to date, the cards of this 
record being filed according to a minute system of classifi- 
cation, and therefore requiring more time. The same will 
doubtless hold true also of the cards of the Concilium 
Bibliographicum, to which reference was made in last 
year's report, in the filing of which no progress can as yet 
be reported. 

The recataloguing of the literature on Southern Africa 
in June completed the class History and topography. In 
addition to History and topography (D-F) the following 
classes are now recatalogued: Geography, voyages and 
travel (general) (G); Physical geography (GB); Ocean- 
ography (GC); Anthropogeography (GF); Sports and 
games (GV); Statistics (HA); Economic theory -(HB); 
Economic history, National production, Economic situa- 
tion, by countries (HC); Transportation and communica- 
tion (HE), except serials and Telegraph and telephone 
(under way); Literature of Music (ML); Mathematics 
(QA); Physics (QC); Chemistry (QD); Botany (QK); 
General works on technology and engineering (T, TA); 
Bibliography and Library Science (Z).

The proposition of the Catalogue Rules Committee of the 
British Library Association to join with the correspond- 
ing committee of the A. L,. A. in considering the adop- 
tion of a joint code of rules for American and English 
libraries has given added importance to the work on which 
this committee has been engaged since January, 1901. 
A meeting of the American committee was held in New 
York city March 25-28, 1905, at which the A. L. A. 
rules were carefully considered, many disputed points 
definitely disposed of and considerable progress made 
toward the settlement of the remaining ones. The draft 
code submitted by the British committee was considered 
point for point. As the latter was based in part on the 
American preliminary code published by the Library of 
Congress in 1902, the points of difference were found to 
be fewer and less serious than was at first anticipated. 
The report of the decisions arrived at, subsequently for- 
warded to the British committee, will no doubt go far 
towards establishing a common understanding with refer- 
ence to these questions. An international agreement on 
cataloguing which shall enlist at least the" great major- 
ity of libraries in English speaking countries is therefore 
in sight. The ultimate importance of such an achieve- 
ment in its bearings on cooperation between libraries, and 
uniformity in their practice can not well be overestimated. 

The total number of volumes classified was 131,986; 
reclassified, 57,243 (including 11,272 transfers); new ac-

lows: Class A (Polygraphy), 20,000; D (History), 62,000; 
E and F (America), 41,000; G (Geography), 12,000; H

reference library, Incunabula collection, etc., 4,000. 
Total, approximately, 385,000 volumes.

other Government libraries for sales to them. These are 
not represented by cash payment to us, but by a charge 
at the Government Printing Office against their respective 
' ' allotments ' ' for printing. During the past year these 
charges amounted to $5 17. 91. 

The amount appropriated specifically by Congress for 
service in the Card Section was last year $6,800. To this 
should be added the salaries, aggregating $3,000, of five 
employees of the Government Printing Office engaged in 
certain work intermediate between the actual printing of 
the cards and their distribution. With this expenditure for 
service ($9,800) the Card Section has handled the entire 
output of cards during the year, including those sorted 
away into "stock," has distributed the $16,014.46 worth 
of cards (in number, say, 2,000,000) sold, and has carried 
on all the correspondence and maintained the records neces- 
sary to the business. It has also classified and distributed 
the 1,200,000 cards issued without charge to the 31 deposi- 
tory libraries. 

During the past three and a half years the business has CARD SECTION: 


been experimental. A small staff has sufficed for it, and a 
system of record somewhat elementary. The volume of 
business is now so considerable and growing so rapidly that 
a rapid increase must be sought in the service and a more 
elaborate system of record. 

The recent increase in sales is traceable in part to the 
demand for cards covering the titles in the "A. L. A. 
Catalog of 8,000 volumes for a popular library." Cards 
for individual books in this collection can be ordered with 
facility and precision by merely quoting the ' ' consecutive 
numbers ' ' affixed to their titles in this catalogue. But a 
complete set of the cards covering the entire collection may 
be had for $154.56. For this small sum therefore (less 
than three months' salary of a competent cataloguer) a 

78 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

library having or buying this collection may secure the cards 
for a complete dictionary catalogue of it under author and 
subject. It is little wonder that libraries newly starting or 
reorganizing should promptly adopt this method of solving 
the difficult problem of selection and the expensive problem 
of cataloguing. Better for them to take even a large num- 
ber of books that may not be absolutely the best for their 
purpose than to forego the benefit of this list already made 
and this catalogue already provided. 
CARD DISTRIBU- /j^ sav j n or to a library by the purchase of our cards over 


Saving to U- the cost of cataloguing independently the books which they 

br aries 

represent and printing or otherwise manifolding the cards 
for them, is estimated to be from four to seven times the 
price they pay us. They have paid us during the past 
year $16,000. They have therefore saved during the past 
year from four to seven times this sum $64,000 to $i 1 2,000. 
Let us take the mean of this as certainly within the mark. 
It is $88,000. The distribution of our printed cards has 
then directly saved the libraries of this country during the 
past year not less than $88,000. This saving is equal to 
the total sum ($88,140) expended by the Government dur- 
ing the year for the maintenance of our entire force of 
classifiers and cataloguers, 91 in number. 

That force was established for our own immediate needs. 
There can not be a doubt that its indirect service to the 
community would more than justify its maintenance even if 
we had no need of catalogues of our own and no use for the 
books catalogued; even if, in other words, we were not a 
library, but a mere cataloguing bureau. 

The jury of award at the Louisiana Purchase Exposi- 
tion granted a grand prize for this system of catalogue 
card distribution. Composed as the jury was in part of 
eminent librarians from abroad, this award . was a con- 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 


firmation of the reputation which this work has gained 
in all countries where improvements in library adminis- 
tration and cooperation among libraries are studied and 
sought. The work needs no advertisement from us, for 
it is brought voluntarily into notice in publications and 
at library meetings wherever such matters are under dis- 

I mention this recognition with gratitude to my col- 
leagues whose devotion and whose efficiency have deserved 
it; but in particular with gratitude to Congress, which, 
in granting me the means to secure such experts, has 
enabled the work to be undertaken in a way to insure 
its success.

Such a misunderstanding is not strange. It naturally 
results from the repetition in our reports from year to year 
of statistics entitled ''statistics of use," but which are 
neither complete nor descriptive. In my last report I stated 
that I was inclined thereafter ' ' to omit entirely the figures 
of volumes issued in the Main Reading Room." 

In the present report I accordingly omit the usual table. 
The figures for the Reading Room alone show a slight dimi- 
nution over those of last year a diminution, however, 
explained and offset by increase in the other Divisions. 
Fluctuations in them, as in the statistics of total attendance, 
are observable from year to year. Over longer periods as 
the six years past the gross attendance and the use have, 
of course, increased materially. 

The total number of visitors to the building last year was 
923,116, as against 816,700 in 1904. 

The number of books sent out on interlibrary loans 
reached last year 934, as against but one third of that num- 
ber during the year preceding. 

a Including furniture, books, cataloguing, etc., all Divisions of the library. He 
included even the appropriation for the Copyright Office and Card Section which 
are self-supporting. 

bThe service in the Main Reading Room costs not $590,000 a year, as this com- 
parison would imply, but 142,000. It covers a day from 9 a. m. till 10 p. m., requir- 
ing two "shifts," and it includes aid to inquirers not at all represented in the 
statistics of the books issued. The people engaged in it are not, as he remarked, 
429, but only 50.

Twenty-two persons have contributed sums amounting 
to $42.75 for street-car tickets to enable blind persons to 
attend the readings and musicals. 

During the past year there were 66 readings and 
36 musicals. There were 68 volunteer readers and 94

The sum allotted to the Library of Congress for this Lewis and 

Clark Centennial 

exhibit was $3,000. Its allotment of floor space was about Exposition 
1,000 square feet. The exhibit was largely made up of 
materials sent directly from the exhibit at St. Louis. 
Although both funds and space were too limited for an 
adequate exhibit, the work of nearly every Division of the 
Library was represented. The exhibit was well arranged 
and attracted its full share of attention. It could not have 
been essentially improved except by the addition of rare 
books, manuscripts, and prints, which it seemed unwise to 
expose to the risks incident to transportation and installa- 
tion in a wooden building. 


The existing copyright laws of the United States are 
admittedly imperfect and confused, difficult for the courts 
to interpret, and impossible for the Copyright Office to 
administer to the satisfaction of its clients. A similar, 
though less flagrant condition of the laws relating to 
trade-marks led to the appointment by Congress of a 
Commission to revise and codify them. Similar action has 
been urged to deal with copyright. The experience of the 
committees of Congress concerned with these subjects led 
them to believe, however, that as effective results would 
be achieved more promptly, and at less cost, by conference 
and agreement among the various interests particularly 
suffering from defects in the present laws and likely to 
benefit in a direct and practical way by the correction of 

In April last the following circular was issued from my 


April io, 1905 

" SIR: It is generally admitted by those most directly 
concerned that the copyright laws of the United States 
need revision. Since the enactment of the Revised 

86 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Revision of Statutes relating to copyright, twelve amendatory acts 

copyright laws 

have been passed, and as these contain textual contra- 
dictions and inconsistencies the interpolation of their 
provisions into those of the Revised Statutes gives rise 
to serious perplexities and embarrassments. Projects 
for the further amendment of these laws are constantly 
urged, and five copyright bills were pending on the 
adjournment of Congress on March 3, 1905. 

"It is doubtful, however, if the enactment of addi- 
tional provisions which are merely partial or temporiz- 
ing will remedy the existing difficulties. The time 
seems to have been reached for the replacement of the 
existing insufficient and inconsistent laws by one gen- 
eral copyright statute. 

' * The Senate Committee on Patents, which deals with 
copyright legislation, has, in view of these considera- 
tions, made public its purpose ' ' to attempt a codification 
of the copyright laws at the next session of Congress." 
The chairman of that committee has suggested that the 
Librarian of Congress call a conference to consider such 
a codification, and that such persons and associations 
as are interested in the subject be invited to be present 
or to appoint delegates to meet at some suitable place 
and convenient time, for the purpose of discussing a 
draft of a general copyright law to be presented for 
consideration at the next session of Congress. 

' ' It would be desirable to secure such a meeting as 
early in the summer as possible, and, as a matter of 
convenience to the greater number of possible repre- 
sentatives, it is proposed to meet in New York City at 
some place and date (between May 25 and June 15) to 
be fixed upon later. This preliminary conference 
should be followed by a second meeting in the autumn 
sufficiently early to allow the results arrived at to be 
properly formulated for presentation upon the opening 
of Congress in the following December. 

' ' The discussions must necessarily be kept within a 
limit that shall insure a practical result. They will, 
however, afford opportunity, not merely for considering 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 87 

the defects of the present laws in definition and expres- 
sion, but other imperfections through which they fail 
to secure protection obviously just. These defects and 
imperfections should be submitted to the conference by 
the interests concerned with their remedy. A repre- 
sentation of such interests as nearly complete as feasible 
\vill be sought. 

' We assume that your organization should partici- 
pate, and suggest that action be taken toward its repre- 
sentation by at least one, not exceeding two, delegates. 
(The number should be thus limited in order to avoid 
a total number that would be unwieldy.) We recom- 
mend, therefore: 

1 i ) That you submit this project to your organization 
or such body as may be authorized to act in its behalf; 

(2) That the organization, or such other body, 
designate a delegate or two delegates, who shall be 
authorized, in its behalf, to submit suggestions to the 
conference, to participate in its discussions, and to cast 
votes on all questions submitted to a vote; 

(3) That prompt notice be given to the Librarian of 
Congress of the action taken as above; 

(4) That in case your organization does not care to 
be represented, you notify the Librarian immediately. 

"An invitation similar to this is. being issued concur^ 
rently to various other organizations representing au- 
thors, painters, composers, playwrights, photographers, 
publishers, printers and illustrators, the American Bar 
Association, and certain others concerned with copy- 
right matters. 

1 For effective discussion it seems necessary that the 
main conferences should be primarily of representatives 
of organized interests. That need not preclude the 
conference itself from seeking counsel or suggestion 
from individuals; though it seems probable that such 
counsel or suggestion could most advantageously be 
transmitted through some one of the organizations 
formally represented at the conference.

88 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

1 ' I shall be glad to receive from you suggestion of 
any other organization representing interests akin to 
those represented by yours, to which a copy of this 
invitation should be addressed. 

1 ' The questions to be submitted in behalf of the in- 
terests which you represent should of course be deter- 
mined beforehand, and formulated with such precision 
that your representatives can present at the conference 
practically definite instructions. If, in advance of the 
conference, copies of your- proposals can be sent to me, 
the points raised can be collated and the discussion 
upon them thereby facilitated. 

' ' The Register of Copyrights has prepared an edition 
of the copyright laws in force, in which the provisions 
of the Revised Statutes relating to copyright are pre- 
sented in an orderly arrangement, with the correspond- 
ing provisions of subsequent amendatory acts in parallel 
columns. This is printed on writing paper with wide 
margins, upon which can be noted suggestions relative 
to the provisions of the laws now in force. A copy of 
this work will be sent upon request."

90 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

COPYRIGHT-CON- The limitations, as well as the opportunities of the 


Proceedings Conference, were indicated in my opening remarks to the 
delegates at their first session: 

"The origin, the occasion, and the purpose of this 
Conference are indicated in the call. The origin is a 
general agreement that our present copyright laws are 
defective in definition and imperfect, and perhaps 
inconsistent, in expression. The occasion is an intima- 
tion from the Senate Committee on Patents that at the 
coming session of Congress the committee proposes to 
submit a bill for a codification of these laws. Such a 
bill would naturally be drafted in the Copyright Office. 
If so, it would be the desire of the Copyright Office to 
have upon it the criticism of the various interests con- 
cerned with copyright protection. But the Office sees 
in it also an opportunity to submit to Congress in a 
systematic and orderly way various suggestions for the 
perfection of the laws where it is claimed they are now 
unjust or defective, and this Conference is to give 
expression to these suggestions. Such of them as 
survive discussion will be noted for the attention of 
Congress in connection with such a codification. We 
invite them. We shall try to secure fair consideration 
for any of them that seem obviously just or to be sup- 
ported by a considerable opinion. But we would not 
have our abilities in the matter nor the abilities of this 
Conference overestimated. 

'The Conference, of course, is not a commission ap- 
pointed by Congress to revise or even to codify the 
law. It is not in a formal way appointed by Congress 
at all. It has been invited by the Copyright Office, at 
the suggestion, to be sure, of the chairman of the Sen- 
ate Committee on Patents, but without any express 
direction or mandate of law. It will, of course, be 
advisory to the Office, and through the Office it may 
reach Congress with recommendations, but of course 
its expressions can be no more than recommendations, 
and the recommendations to be effective ought, of 
course, to be kept within reasonable limits likely to be 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 91 

' ' The District Attorney has remarked that our statu- 
tory laws ought to be in two parts the first of laws to 
be followed and the second of "moral yearnings." In 
our proposals for copyright we had, I think, better 
leave the moral yearnings to a later generation or at 
least a later session of Congress. 

"The Conference is composed of organizations con- 
cerned with copyright protection, but it is composed of 
typical organizations only important ones, but typical 
ones only. It can not claim, therefore, to be com- 
pletely representative of the community. It has not 
been composed with reference to balancing interests 
possibly conflicting. A majority vote of its members 
would not determine a proposal to be just nor would a 
unanimous vote determine it to be expedient. In fact, 
any mere vote of the Conference would have small 

' ' Now, these are serious limitations. We think they 
, ought to be clearly before you at the outset, but we do 
not believe that they should prevent a work here of 
high service and of profit, and a work of which there 
is urgent need; and we cannot but believe that una- 
nimity of opinion in a body such as this, so nearly rep- 
resentative and including interests so important, must 
have great weight with Congress. 

' ' Our first intention had been to ask you to submit 
your suggestions to us at Washington, either by letter 
or by delegates, and submit them as separate organiza- 
tions. It later seemed that a comparison of views such 
as a meeting such as this might afford would be profit- 
able; and then it seemed that it would be more consid- 
erate to the majority of you that this first session at 
least should be held in New York, and we have come 
to meet you here." 

In addition to the Librarian of Congress and the Register 
of Copyrights, the Government was represented by Mr. 
Charles P. Montgomery, of the Treasury Department, whose 
explanations and suggestions with reference to importation

COPYRIGHT CON- were clear and valuable. At the second session in Novem- 

p*FR T7TtfQE * 

Proceedings, ber a representative of the Solicitor General's Office was 
present to observe and report the discussions, in the expec- 
tation that the Department of Justice would later be called 
upon for criticism of the proposed bill. The Conference 
accepted the theory of its functions thus indicated. It 
avoided the profession of an authority which it could not 
claim by avoiding either formal organization or formal 
"decision." The delegates submitted suggestions, ex- 
pressed views, and discussed them, but they brought none 
of them to a formal vote. 

The first session of the Conference was held at the City 
Club of New York, which had generously granted the use 
of its rooms. It occupied both mornings and afternoons 
of three successive days, beginning May 31. Its accom- 
plishments are summarized in an editorial in the Pub- 
lishers Weekly, from which I quote: 

1 ' Results of surprising unanimity were reached in a 
minimum of time and without waste of talk. * * * 
It was the unanimous feeling that unhoped-for progress 
toward an excellent, if not ideal, copyright code had 
been made possible, and that the results would prob- 
ably be quicker and better than if the plan of a [copy- 
right] commission had been adopted." 

A stenographic report was preserved of the entire pro- 
ceedings. Upon the basis of it and other accumulated 
data there was drafted by the Register of Copyrights a 
statement for consideration at the second session in No- 
vember. For convenience it took the form of a bill; but 
was in effect a series of propositions for discussion. 

The second session, also held at New York, lasted four 
days, and included detailed discussion of every proposed 
provision, with arguments for both additions and elimina- 

Report of the Librarian of Congress 


tions. A third, to be held at Washington after the opening 
of Congress, will consider a new draft taking account of 
these and of specific criticism, legal and practical, from 
various sources. The result may be a measure which 
Congress can adopt without demur. 

There have been many endeavors to perfect our copy- COPYR IGHT 


right laws; but they have been sporadic, as a rule directed Scope of 

posed reforms 

to one particular detect, and generally undertaken by the 
single interest having a grievance or, perhaps even less 
fortunately, by advocates of an abstract justice which ran 
counter to a particular interest. The proposed measure will 
represent a very different purpose, method, and authority. 
Its purpose is indeed justice, but a justice within the general 
intent of the existing law. It recognizes certain definite 
defects which entail certain substantial hardships. It sum- 
mons to conference the interests which in a substantial 
not merely theoretic way are the actual sufferers. And 
these agree upon the remedies to be recommended. But on 
considering these remedies they have at hand, prepared by 
the Copyright Office, in anticipation of this very exigency, 
careful analyses not merely of the existing copyright laws 
of the United States and of foreign countries, but of the 
past statutes, showing the development of the domestic law 
and even of every bill ever introduced into Congress pro- 
posing amendment of it. They have at their service with- 
out cost sound legal counsel from the representatives of 
the American Bar Association, itself a participant; the crit- 
icisms of other experts on copyright law, and of the legal 
advisers of the government. And, furthermore, they have 
throughout the sympathy and the cooperation, the active 
aid and the conservative experience of the Copyright Office, 
with its precise knowledge of existing procedure, which in 
this case is also a knowledge of the substantive right. 

94 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Surely from these elements, joined with the spirit of 
fairness and of courtesy manifest at the conferences, there 
should issue a measure entitled to respect. 


In my last report I referred to certain legislation, other 
than revision of the copyright laws, as needed to facili- 
tate the current administration of the Library. As none 
of this has yet been provided, I venture to repeat the 
statement of it: 

Postal law. Amendments which 

1 i ) Will confer upon the Library the privilege of free 
registration of mail matter, already accorded to various 
departments and bureaus of the Government. 

(2) Will render explicit the privilege upon the part of 
copyright applicants of free transmission to the Copyright 
Office of articles deposited under the copyright law. The 
privilege was granted in 1867, repeated in 1870, but has 
been cast into doubt, at least, by subsequent general 

(3) Will similarly render explicit the privilege of free 
transmittal in general of mail matter to and from the 
Library of Congress on the public business. This has been 
assumed, but only under the provisions of law touching 
executive business of the Government in general. 

Tariff law. The inclusion of music, reproductions of 
photographs, and all other printed material, bound or un- 
bound, in the description of the articles which, under the 
act approved July 24, 1897 (par. 500 of sec. 2), may be 
imported free of duty for the use of the Library of Con- 
gress. Music the Library may now import only under 
paragraph 503 (which exempts public libraries in gen- 
eral). Reproductions of photographs are not now pro- 
vided for in either paragraph. On some the Library has

The specifications of paragraph 503 are "books, maps, music, photographs,

Washington, D. C., December 5, 1905 

SIR: Heretofore the Superintendent has rendered sepa- 
rate annual reports to Congress, covering the years 1898 to 
1904, although not specifically required by law to do so, 
but in the later years the greater parts of these reports 
have been practically duplicated in those of the Librarian 
to render them duly comprehensive of the Library as a 
whole. With the Librarian's concurrence, therefore, the 
Superintendent proposed in his last annual report to Con- 
gress to report thereafter annually by contribution to that 
of the Librarian, and this is now done. 

Beside the care and maintenance of the building and 
grounds of the Library, this office, being separate and 
distinct from that of the Librarian, has charge of the 
equipment of the Library as to interior fixtures, furni- 
ture, and mechanical appliances, and disburses all appro- 
priations for the Library as well as those for the build- 
ing and grounds. 

In prior years the building was open to visitors during 
parts or the whole of some of the holidays, while the reading 
rooms were closed; but during the last two fiscal years the 
building and the reading and exhibition rooms have been 
open to the public, as on Sundays, from 2 to 10 o'clock 


ioo Superintendent of Building and Grounds 

p. tn., excepting Christmas day (Sunday), the Monday fol- 
lowing, and the Fourth of July, which were the only entire 
days in the year when the building was not open. During 
the warm months of July, August, and September, however, 
the building was closed after i o'clock on Saturdays. 


The number of visitors admitted during the fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1905, as carefully counted at the entrances,

The total visitors during the six days of ' ' Inaugura- 
tion week," from March 2 to 7, inclusive, was 150,325. 


The mechanical apparatus of the building for warming, 
ventilation, elevators, transmission machinery both trol- 
ley and pneumatic electric lighting, and water supply 
has been in operation with practically no interruption 
whatever, although its constant day and evening use 
leaves but few hours, and those at night, for readjust- 
ments and repairs. As stated in the last annual report, 

Superintendent of Building and Grounds 101 

the elec]tric-power machinery is daily taxed to its full 
capacity, and at times overloaded, by the now very general 
occupation and use of the great building day and even- 
ing. This use is gradually increasing, and additional 
power will shortly be needed to meet it, but it is expected 
that the central power plant, soon to be constructed for 
the Government buildings on Capitol Hill, will obviate 
the necessity for additional expenditure at the Library 
building in that direction. The estimate for fuel, lights, 
and miscellaneous supplies for the next fiscal year is there- 
fore not increased above that of last year. 


By careful attention and the assistance of the Office 
of Public Buildings and Grounds, under the annual appro- 
priation of $1,000 for the purpose, the grounds of the 
Library have been maintained in good and appropriate 
condition as essentially a continuation of the Capitol park. 


Last winter, before the sunny season approached, the 
equipment of mechanical window shades of brass wire 
cloth for the two main book stacks, described in the last 
report, was completed and has been in constant and very 
successful operation ever since. 

The two tier arrangement of combined storage and 
exhibition cases, comprising 40 cases in all, for the Divi- 
sion of Prints, begun in the last fiscal year, has been com- 
pleted, excepting some of the movable shelves and trays. 

In the latter part of the year six more of the 26 pairs 
of iron shelf ranges in the first tier of the new book 
stack in the north curtain hall (room H~4) were inclosed 
in glass, making 18 such inclosures in that stack. At 
the same time a contract was made for similarly inclos- 

IO2 Superintendent of Building and Grounds 

ing the corresponding 18 pairs of ranges in the second 
tier, and that work has since been finished. 

Out of the $40,000 appropriated for furniture, partitions, 
shelving, screens, etc., there were also procured numerous 
catalogue cases, screens, tables, desks, chairs, repairs, exhi- 
bition cases, etc., which, together with the larger fixtures, 
are summarized in the following list of expenditures from 
that appropriation: 

South curtain, second story, shelving, including electric 

lighting thereof $9, 544. 45 

Inclosures of shelving, north curtain; being 6 in lower 

and 18 in second tier 5, 413. 78

For additional, though temporary, accommodations for the 
growing accumulation of bound newspaper volumes, room 
has had to be found in the cellar of the Library building, 
although not a suitable place for the preservation, access 
to, or use of such valuable and constantly called for mate- 
rial. The copyright deposits in the cellar are also fast 
encroaching on the small space, such as' it is, available 
for the newspaper volumes, and the result is an imminent 
necessity for a radically different and suitable provision for 
the shelving of the newspaper collection. Having charge 
of the appropriations and planning for the furniture equip- 
ment of the Library, the Superintendent now finds that 
no available space, of dimensions at all warranting the 
expense of proper permanent shelving and facilities for 
the accommodation of that collection, remains within the 
building and that it is now necessary to resort to occu- 
pation of the southeast court for this purpose. 

The original plans and description of the building adopted 
by Congress October 2, 1888, illustrated and proposed such 
a future use of the courts whenever the growth of the col- 
lections might exceed the capacity of the building, without 
requiring any real extension of the building or an} 7 modifi- 
cation of its architectural appearance. (House Mis. Doc. 12, 
5oth Cong., 2d sess.) Last year it w r as expected that a 
considerable part of the $40,000 appropriated for furniture, 
shelving, partitions, screens, etc. , for the present year could 
be profitably used in the construction of permanent news- 
paper shelving within the building, but this now proves to 
be impracticable and unwise, for the reason given above. 
Its expenditure must therefore be restricted to other furni- 
ture for the building unless Congress authorizes its applica- 
tion to the construction of newspaper shelving in one of the

Appendix II 


Washington, D. C. , July 6, 1905 

The copyright business and the work of the Copyright 
Office for the fiscal year from July i, 1904, to June 30, 1905, 
inclusive, are summarized as follows: 


The gross receipts during the year were $80,440.56. A Fees, etc. 
balance of $2, 165.29, representing trust funds and unfinished 
business, was on hand July i, 1904, making a total of 
$82,605.85 to be accounted for. Of this amount the sum 
of $2,430.92 was refunded, having been sent to the Copy- 
right Office as excess fees or as fees for articles not regis- 
trable, leaving a net balance of $80,174.93. The balance 
carried over July i, 1905, was $2,116.93 (representing 
trust funds, $1,674.46, and total unfinished business since 
July i, 1897 eight years $442.47), leaving for fees ap- 
plied during the fiscal year 1904-5, $78,058. 


The appropriation made by Congress for salaries in the Salaries 
Copyright Office for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1905, 
was $74,700. Of this amount the total expenditure for 
salaries was $74,662.46, or $3,395.54 less than the net 
amount of fees earned and paid into the Treasury during 
the corresponding year. The expenditure for supplies, 
except furniture, including stationery and other articles, 
and postage on foreign mail matter, etc., was $967.72. 

The copyright fees received and paid into the United Copyright fees 
States Treasury during the last eight years, from July i , 



Report of the Librarian of Congress 

1897, to June 30, 1905, amount to $5 2 7>335-5o> while the 
.sum used of the appropriations for salaries during that pe- 
riod was $427,588.22, leaving an excess of fees over appro- 
priations used for service for the eight years of $99,747.28. 
Copyright de- During these same eight years the articles received as 


deposits amount to the grand total or 1,276,143 pieces,

43,471 engravings, cuts, and prints, 13,244 chromos and 
lithographs, 94,537 photographs, and 389 miscellaneous 
articles. In addition to the above, 20,495 photographs 
were deposited to identify the same number of original 
works of art paintings, drawings, and statuary of which 
the descriptions had been filed. Man} T of these articles are 
of considerable value. 


Registrations The entries of titles for the fiscal year reached the highest 
number in the history of the Copyright Office, namely, 
113,374. Of these entries 103,544 were titles f the pro- 
ductions of citizens or residents of the United States, and 
9,830 were titles of works of foreigners. The fees for these 
entries were: United States, $51,772; foreign, $9,830, or a 
total of $61,602. 

Certificates, etc. Qf the foreign entries 2,831 were with certificates, and of 
the United States entries 25,425, or a total of 28,256 certifi- 
cates, at fees amounting to $14, 1 28. In addition, 2, 95 8 copies

amount to 207,424. This is a gain of 22,625 over the pre- 
ceding fiscal year. The number of these articles in each 
class for the eight fiscal years is shown in Exhibit G, and 
indicates a grand total of 1,276,143 articles received in the 
eight years. 


The usual four quarterly volumes of the Catalogue of catalogue 
Title Entries were printed, containing 5,289 pages. 

The title index cards for the fiscal year number 181,709. 
After having been first used as the copy for the printed cat- 
alogue required to be produced weekly by the act of Con- 
gress of March 3, 1891 (5ist Cong., 2d sess. , ch. 565), 
these cards are added to the permanent card indexes of the 
copyright entries, which now number a total of over 
1,213,000 cards.

on July 2, 1904, and January 3, 1905, setting out in con- 
densed form the statistics of the copyright business for the 
fiscal year 1903-4, and for the calendar year 1904, respec- 
tively. Of the usual " Circulars of Information," thirteen circulars 
were reprinted during the year, as new editions were 're- 
quired. The text of the new copyright act of March 3, 
1905, was printed, with a brief summary of the proceedings 
in Congress leading to its enactment, and also with explicit 
directions for making application under the new law, in 
French and in German as well as in English.

() Current work 

The current work of the Copyright Office is now kept as state of work 
nearly up to date as is possible in an office where the daily 
business is so fluctuating. During the year the title regis- 
trations have varied from 141 in one day to 3,320 on another 

At this date (July 6, 1905) the remittances received up to Accounts 
the third mail of the day have been recorded and acknowl- 
edged; the account books of the bookkeeping division are 
written up and posted to June 30, and the accounts rendered 
to the Treasury Department are settled up to and including 
the month of June, while earned fees to June 30, inclusive, 
have been paid into the Treasury. 

All copyright applications received up to and including 
June 30 have been passed upon and refunds made. The 
total unfinished business for the full eight years, from July 
i, 1897, to June 30, 1905, amounts to but $442.47. 

At the close of business on July 6, 1905, notwithstanding nties recorded 
the intervening Saturday half holiday and Sunday, the 
titles for record in all classes had been dated, classified, and 
numbered to June 30, and all titles had been indexed up 
to June 30.

(b} Copyright business prior to July i, 1897 

Arrears Congress in the appropriation act for the fiscal year just 

closed continued the special force for work on the arrears 
of Copyright Office business prior to July i, 1897. The

fication and credit could not be made, and they were accord- 
ingly indexed and filed for convenient reference, those 
which were desired by the Library being forwarded to the 
shelves for use.

During the third session of the Fifty-eighth Congress six 
copyright bills were pending. Of these one became law, 
being approved on March 3, 1905. This bill, originally in- 
troduced by Senator Platt, of Connecticut, on January 15, 
1902, was printed as Senate bill No. 2894 of the Fifty-sev- 
enth Congress, first session, and referred to the Senate Com- 
mittee on Patents, but was not reported on. The bill pro- 
vided that in the case of a foreign book in a foreign language 
two copies of the original foreign edition might be deposited 
in the Copyright Office within thirty days after publication 
abroad, the title of the work having been previously filed 
' ' on or before the day of publication in this or any foreign 
country," accompanied with either (a) an affidavit declaring 
that the claimant was the author of the book, or (#) evidence 
that he was the author's executor or administrator, or (c) 
an assignment to him from the author. No person should 
have copyright in such book, however, after the expiration 
of twelve months from first publication abroad, unless two 
copies of the work were delivered at the Library of Congress 

124 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

within said twelve months, printed from type set within the 
limits of the United States or from plates made therefrom, 
"either in the language of origin, or in a version or transla- 
tion thereof in English or some other language. ' ' During 
this interval the importation of copies of the original work 
was to be permitted, such copies requiring no notice of 

No action having been taken upon this bill, a substitute 
bill was presented by Senator Platt, of Connecticut, on 
November 16, 1903. This was printed as Senate bill No. 
849 of the Fifty-eighth Congress, first session, but an error 
having occurred in the printing, it was reintroduced on 
December 8, 1903, and again ordered printed as Senate bill 
No. 2229, and referred to the Committee on Patents. From 
that committee it was reported on January 8, 1904, with 
the recommendation that it should be passed without 

Meantime, on December 9, 1903, the bill had been pre- 
sented in the House of Representatives by Mr. Currier, of 
New Hampshire, referred to the House Committee on Pat- 
ents, and ordered printed as House bill No. 6487. From 
this committee the bill was sent back to the House of Rep- 
resentatives on March i, 1904, with a detailed report (House 
Report No. 1287), an d an amendment to the effect that the 
act should only apply " to a citizen or subject of a foreign 
state or nation when such foreign state or nation permits 
to citizens of the United States of America the benefit of 
copyright on the same basis as is given to its citizens 
by this Act. ' ' On December 14, 1904, the bill was passed by 
the House of Representatives, amended as proposed by the 
House Committee on Patents. 

The House act, referred to the Senate Committee on 
Patents on December 15, 1904, was reported on January 
27, 1905, with a verbal amendment to the effect that the 
act should only apply when the foreign country con- 
cerned permitted to citizens of the United States the 
"benefit of copyright on substantially the same basis 
as to its own citizens. ' ' On January 30 the bill from the 
Committee on Patents was brought up in the Senate, but 
was met with the objection that it failed to provide for a , 

Register of Copyrights 


notice of the reservation of copyright. Thereupon 
Senator Platt let the bill go over without action, and on 
February 2 presented a substitute bill (submitted at his 
request by the Register of Copyrights) as an amendment. 
This was passed by the Senate on March 3, 1905, and 
on the same day received an affirmative vote in the House. 
The text of the new legislation is given here, with the 
wording of the House act as reported by the Senate Com- 
mittee on Patents, in parallel columns: 

[Act of March 3, 1905, as approved.] 

' ' Whenever the author or pro- 
prietor of a book in a foreign lan- 
guage, which shall be published 
in a foreign country before the 
day of publication in this country, 
or his executors, administrators, 
or assigns, shall deposit one com- 
plete copy of the same, including 
all maps and other illustrations, 
in the Library of Congress, 
Washington, District of Columbia, 
within thirty days after the first 
publication of such book in a for- 
eign country, and shall insert in 
such copy, and in all copies of such 
book sold or distributed in the 
United States, on the title page 
or the page immediately follow- 
ing, a notice of the reservation of 
copyright in the name of the pro- 
prietor, together with the true 
date of first publication of such 
book, in the following words: 
'Published , nineteen hun- 

dred and . Privilege of copy- 
right in the United States reserved 
under the Act approved March 
third, nineteen hundred and five, 
by , ' and shall, within twelve 
months after the first publication 
of such book in a foreign country, 
file the title of such book and de- 
posit two copies of it in the origi- 
nal language or, at his option, of 
a translation of it in the English 
language, printed from type set 

[H. R. Act 6487 as amended by the 
Senate Committee on Patents.] 

' ' Whenever the author or pro- 
prietor of a book in a foreign lan- 
guage, which shall be published 
in a foreign country before the 
day of publication in this country, 
or his executors, administrators, 
or assigns, shall, within twelve 
months after the first publication 
of such book in a foreign country, 
obtain a copyright for a translation 
of such book in the English lan- 
guage, which shall be the first 
copyright in this country for a 
translation of such book, he and 
they shall have, during the term 
of such copyright, the sole liberty 
of printing, reprinting, publish- 
ing, vending, translating, and 
dramatizing the said book, and, in 
the case of a dramatic composi- 
tion, of publicly performing the 
same, or of causing it to be per- 
formed or represented by others: 
Provided, That this Act shall only 
apply to a citizen or subject of a 
foreign state or nation when such 
foreign state or nation permits to 
citizens of the United States of 
America the benefit of copyright 
on substantially the same basis as 
to its own citizens. ' ' 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

within the limits of the United 
States, or from plates made there- 
from, containing a notice of copy- 
right, as provided by the copy- 
right laws now in force, he and 
they shall have during the term 
of twenty-eight years from the 
date of recording the title of the 
book or of the English translation 
of it, as provided for above, the 
sole liberty of printing, reprinting, 
publishing, vending, translating, 
and dramatizing the said book: 
Provided, That this Act shall 
only apply to a citizen or subject 
of a foreign State or nation when 
such foreign State or nation per- 
mits to citizens of the United 
States of America the benefit of 
copyright on substantially the 
same basis as to its own citizens." 


It has been generally admitted that the copyright laws 
need amendment and that such amendment should be 
secured by the substitution of one general law in place of 
the thirteen laws which now have to do with copyright. 

The Senate Committee on Patents which deals with 
copyright legislation, in view of this admitted necessity 
for amendment pf the copyright laws, made public its 
purpose, in Senate Report 3380, 58th Congress, third 
session, January 27, 1905, "to attempt a codification of 
the copyright laws at the next session of Congress." 

Upon the suggestion of the chairman of the Senate 
Committee on Patents, the Librarian of Congress called 
a conference of representatives of the organizations inter- 
ested in copyright legislation, and a session was held in 
New York, May 3i-June 2, 1905. 

The result of the deliberations of this conference was 
to entrust the Copyright Office with the formulation of 

Register of Copyrights 


a tentative draft of a bill for such a consolidation of the 
copyright laws. A memorandum draft will be accord- 
ingly prepared and submitted to a second session of the 
Conference on Copyright, to be held in New York on 
November i, 1905. It is hoped that after being duly 
considered and discussed this tentative draft may form 
the basis for a bill for the general amendment of the 
copyright laws.

142 Report of the Librarian of Congress 


The increase in the sale of cards as compared with the 
sale of last year has been over 106 per cent. This large 
increase has been due chiefly to the sale of the special 
edition of cards issued for books listed in the new edition 
of the A. L. A. Catalog. It seems probable that the increase 
in the sale of cards ordered in other ways has been about the 
same as last year. 

In the following tabulation of the sale of cards the 
amount realized from subscription to proof sheets is in- 
cluded. The amount charged against the appropriations 
of the United States Departments for cards furnished 
through the Library branch of the Government Printing 
Office is not included in the cash sales, but is given as a 
separate item. .

It has proved impracticable to continue to keep statistics 
of the sales by method of ordering, owing chiefly to the fact 
that about one-half of the orders now received are of a mixed 
character, being partly by title and partly by number. It 
is safe to say, however, that there has been no change in 
methods of ordering and no considerable increase in the 
amount of cards ordered by one or the other method, with 
the notable exception of the orders received from the 
A. L. A. Catalog. 

Orders by number from ' ' The Cumulative Book Index ' ' 
and "The A. L. A. Booklist" are of growing importance, 
although it is probable that during the year they have 
amounted to but a fraction of i per cent of the total. 

The sales to publishers for redistribution to libraries as a 
means of advertising their books have amounted to about 
$250, or about one-sixth of i per cent of the total sales. 


The A. L. A. Catalog has proved to be a very satisfactory 
order list for L. C. cards. Instead of starting a new series 
of numbers for this special edition of cards, or affixing the 
regular card numbers in broken order, the plan was adopted 
of numbering consecutively the titles in the dictionary por- 
tion of the catalogue and arranging the stock to correspond. 
This method reduces to the minimum both the labor of 
preparing orders and the labor of selecting the cards. 

Complete sets of cards for the 6,196 books listed in the 
A. I v . A. Catalog are supplied for $154.56. Twelve sets 
have been sold during the year. 

144 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Since the publication of the catalogue in October, 1904, 
orders made up from this catalogue have come in steadily . 
It is probable that about 90 per cent of the increase in the 
sale of cards for the year has been due to this class of orders. 

The catalogue has especially facilitated the ordering of 
cards by the smaller public libraries, which before its publi- 
cation had no practical means of ordering them by number. 
To it is no doubt due the notable increase in the number of 
subscriptions received from small libraries. 

It is manifest that such libraries now need a current sup- 
plement to the A. L. A. Catalog which will give reliable 
and prompt guidance in the selection of books currently 
published and at the same time supply the L. C. card num- 
bers. Should the A. L. A. Booklist meet this need, it may 
fairly be expected to greatly promote the use of the cards 
by small libraries. 


The stock of printed catalogue cards now amounts to about 
180,000 different cards, with an average of about 40 copies 
of each card. 

The quality of the card stock used throughout the year 
has been of the highest, and the cutting and perforating 
have been uniformly satisfactory. 

About 75 cards are reprinted each week on the average. 
As cards are reprinted those which were originally printed 
in an unsatisfactory form are changed, so far as practicable, 
to agree with the form of card now adopted as most satis- 
factory. The stock of cards therefore tends to become 


Two complete sets of cards have been sent to the ' ' Insti- 
tut International de Bibliographie. ' ' The set of cards now 
on exhibition at Portland will be sent to the Public Library 
of New South Wales at the close of the Exposition. A com- 
plete depository set has also been supplied to the Louisville 
Public Library. 

Partial sets of cards, acquired by purchase by Bowdoin 
College and Princeton University, have been completed and 
the libraries of these institutions made regular depositories.

About 55,000 cards issued before the proof sheets of 
L. C. cards began to be printed have been supplied to the 
Los Angeles Public Library. As this library has syste- 
matically cut and filed its set of proof sheets, it now has 
a complete record of all cards in stock at the Library of 
Congress. For a library in which this record is consulted 
only occasionally, it seems probable that this form of cat- 
alogue will prove as satisfactory as a complete set of cards. 

Two additional partial depositories have been made in 
the libraries of the Departments of the United States 
Government. The complete list of these governmental 

146 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

depositories is as follows, those added during the year 
being marked with an asterisk: 


Cards relating to military science and military history; about 
4,000 cards. 

Cards on sociology and selected topics in science and technol- 
ogy; about 7,000 cards. 

Cards relating to such branches of science and technology as 
are related to the work of the Survey; about 2,000 cards. 

Complete sets of cards on sociology and bibliography; about 
12,000 cards. 

Cards relating to such branches of science and technology as 
are related to the work of the Survey; about 2,000 cards. 

Cards relating to the Central and South American Republics; 
about 2,000 cards. 

Cards relating to certain branches of science and technology; 
about 2,000 cards. v 

Cards for science, mathematics, and physics; about 5,000 cards. 

Complete set of cards on American history, and cards on sub- 
jects pertaining to the work of the War Department; about 35,000 


. The work of the Card Section was quite fully represented 
at the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition. The items 
exhibited were, for the most part, the same as those exhib- 
ited at St. lyouis, but two were added which deserve mention. 
(i) A group of thirteen transparencies, illustrating the pro- 
duction, distribution, ordering, and useof the I,. C. catalogue 
cards. (2) A collection of 29 sample catalogues contrib- 
uted by subscribing libraries in different parts of the coun- 
try, showing methods of adapting the L- C. cards to their 
catalogues. The last-named exhibit was especially sugges- 
tive and use will be made of information obtained from it in 
a revised edition of the Handbook of Card Distribution. 

Report of the Card Section 147 


The absence of the assistant in charge for about four 
months of the year on account of work in connection with 
the St. Louis Exposition and the Portland Exposition, pre- 
vented the publication of a much-needed revision of the 
Handbook of Card Distribution. 

Two additional bulletins have been issued, viz: 

BULLETIN No. 8. (October i, 1904.) 

"List of subscribers to the L. C. cards." Revised to September 
30, 1904. 
BULLETIN No. 9. (October 15, 1904.) 

"Special sets Nos. 3-5." Explaining terms of subscription to 
sets of analytical cards prepared by the Library of the U. S. De- 
partment of Agriculture for "Annalesde la science agronomique," 
" Landwirthschaftliche Jahrbiicher," and " Die land wirthschaft- 
lichen Versuchs-stationen." 


The remainder of the stock has been transferred to steel 
cases, so that all of it is now stored in a uniform manner. 

The classed catalogue is being revised to agree with the 
new classification of the Library, so far as this is finished. 
Most of the cards on Bibliography, Science, and History 
have been worked over. The revised catalogue, which is in 
effect a card shelf list, has proved to be very satisfactory as 
a means of selecting cards by subject. Until it is finished, 
the work of selecting cards by subject will continue to 
require an excessive amount of expert work of the highest 


The question of changing the thickness of the stock used 
for the cards from the " R, " or intermediate thickness now 
in use, to the " L," or thinnest stock now in use in Amer- 
ican libraries, has been under discussion during the year. 
In order to obtain data on the subject, preliminary to 
its discussion at the Portland meeting of the American 
Library Association, with the cooperation of some of the 
leading library schools and several libraries, tests were 
made as to the relative ease of handling cards of the ' ' L " 

148 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

and ' ' R " thickness. The number of tests made were 
hardly sufficient to form the basis for a definite conclusion 
and the tests proved not to be as definite as the problem 
demanded, but the results of all the evidence received 
seemed to warrant the following tentative conclusions: 

1. A loss of from 4 to 6 per cent in time required by 
library assistants to handle the L thickness. 

2. A very considerable increase in the number of errors 
resulting from mistaking two cards for one, if the L thick- 
ness were used. 

3. The amount of time lost and the number of errors 
made in handling the L thickness increases in proportion 
to the inexpertness of those who handle the cards. The 
loss of time to the average reader who use the public cata- 
logue would probably be not less than 10 per cent, with a 
corresponding increase in number of errors. 

4. When cards are fingered in consecutive order, in much 
the same way that the leaves of a book are ordinarily fin- 
gered, the L thickness may be handled more rapidly even 
than the R thickness on account of the greater flexibility of 
the former. Comparatively little of the handling of cata- 
logue cards can be done in this way, however, and practi- 
cally all of the users of public catalogues will continue to 
pick the cards over one by one. 

5. If the L, and R cards are mixed in the same cata- 
logue, the loss in handling them will probably be as great 
as in handling the L cards alone, and the errors will be even 
more numerous. 

To test thoroughly the relative merits of the two thick- 
nesses of stock as to rapidity and accuracy in handling, and 
reduce the results to exact percentages, would require a 
large number of experiments and much time and attention. 
The question now presented seems to be whether it is bet- 
ter to decide the matter on the basis of the information 
which we now have, or to continue the experiments with 
the probability that they will lead only to the more difficult 
question of deciding whether a loss of from 5 to 10 per cent 
in time is more important than a gain of 30 per cent in

For the sake of completeness I append a list of the tests 
which were employed and directions for making them; also 
a list of the arguments for and against the change to the 
L thickness, compiled as a basis for the discussion at 

The following institutions cooperated in making the tests: 
Pratt Institute Library School, Illinois State Library School, 
Drexel Institute Library School, Washington Public Li- 
brary, Library of the U. S. Department of Agriculture, 
Library of the U. S. Geological Survey, and the John 
Crerar Library. In all, twenty-nine records of tests were

Test No. i. Block up the two " main sets " of L, and R cards alike. 
Turn each card back in the trays one by one in the way that cards are 
usually turned when a person is searching close to the point in a cat- 
alog at which the desired title is expected to be found. Write the 
initial letter of the entry word for each card in the squares on J.he 
" Check sheet for tests Nos. i and 6." Successive letters may be 
written in columns down the sheet or in rows across, as preferred. 
The two main sets of cards are to be checked through in the following 
order: (a) First half of first set; (b) second half of second set; (c] 
first half of second set; (d) second half of first set. 

Test No. 2. The two main sets of cards are sent out arranged in 
the increasing order of their serial numbers. Rearrange them in 
alphabetical order, proceeding as follows: (a) Throw out the first set 
into packs of cards having entry words beginning with the same let- 
ter; (b) throw out the second set in the same way; (c) finish the 
alphabeting of second set; (d) finish the alphabeting of the first set. 

Test No. j. File into each set of cards, blocked up in the same 
way, the 80 cards in the "duplicate sets" in the following order: 
(a) First half of first set; (b} second half of second set; (c) First half 
of second set; (d} second half of first set. 

Test No. 4. Remove the duplicates inserted in test 3 in the follow- 
ing order: (a) First half of first set; (b) second half of second set; 
(c] first half of second set; (d) second half of first set. 

150 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

Test No. 5. Look up and supply the dates of publication of the 80 
books on the " L,ist supplementary to test 5 " in the following order: 
(a) First quarter of list in first quarter of first set; (b) second quarter 
in second quarter of second set; (c) third quarter in third quarter of 
first set; (d] fourth quarter in fourth quarter of second set. 

Test No. 6. Make up a mixed set of Iy and R cards by selecting 
from one of the two main sets all cards having entry word beginning 
with a vowel, and from the other all cards having entry word begin- 
ning with a consonant. Shuffle the resulting set of cards well and 
then count them through and write initial letter of entry words on the 
' ' Check sheet, " as in test i . Make record only of the time required 
to check through the set after it is prepared.

1. So far as practicable, the tests should be made when the person 
is in a normal physical and mental state, in order that the variations 
in the rate of working throughout any single test may be as slight as 

2. In all of the tests which require that the cards be handled one by 
one, each set should be placed in a separate tray of the kind ordinarily 
used for card catalogs, and the two sets should be blocked up alike. 

3. The particular method of dealing with any details attendant upon 
the test is not important so long as the same detail is attended to in 
the same way in the case of both sets. 

4. In order to equalize the tests just as far as possible, those making 
the tests at any institution should alternate in commencing with the 
one or the other set. 

5. When reference is made to "first" set and "second" set, these 
terms indicate merely the order in which the work on the two sets is 
begun in any test. 

6. In order that the tests made by any person may be of value, 
the time required for each item of work in them must be accurately 
recorded as follows.' 

Report of the Card Section 151 

(a) When it has been decided whether the L/ set or the R set shall 
be the " first " set (see 4 and 5 above), supply letters I, or R, as the 
case may require, before word " set " in the form given below the out- 
line for each test. 

() Note below m and s the time in minutes and seconds required 
for performing each item of work required by the test. 

7. The tests should not be considered as "speed tests" in the ordi- 
nary sense of the term. Adopt a systematic method of doing the 
various items of work called for which will tend to make the tests 
uniform and fair throughout. 



[Favoring the change to L thickness] 

1. The saving of space and the saving in the cost of cases by the 
use of the L thickness would be 33^3 per cent, because two trays Avill 
hold as many cards of the I, thickness as three trays will hold of 
the R thickness. 

2. The cost of card stock of the L thickness is 25 per cent less than 
the cost of card stock of the R thickness. 

3. The greater the space occupied by a catalog, the more time it 
takes to consult it because of the necessity of moving from one place 
to another. 

4. The L, thickness is used by the Concilium Bibliographicum of 
Zurich, the Institut International de Bibliographie of Brussels, and 
minor cooperative enterprises for printing cards, affiliated with the 
latter. If this thickness is adopted by the Library of Congress, uni- 
versal agreement as to thickness of cards will be practically an accom- 
plished fact. 

5. The L, stock is somewhat better adapted for typewriter use. 

[Favoring the continued use of the R thickness of stock] 

1. The loss of time from the use of the cards of the L, thickness 
would amount to perhaps 6 per cent. The card catalog is at best a 
serious tax on the time and patience of the users of public libraries. 
Is it advisable to add to their difficulties by using a thinner stock ? 

2. Unless the L, thickness of cards is kept blocked up carefully, it 
will curl and warp to a much greater extent than the R thickness. 

3. Although universal agreement as to thickness is desirable, it is 
not worth any considerable sacrifice for the following reasons: 

(a) The printed cards issued by the Concilium Bibliographicum, 
the Institut International de Bibliographie and affiliated enterprises 
are designed mainly for bibliographical purposes and are not usually 
inserted in the public catalogs of libraries. 

LIB 1905 ii 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

(b] America has taken the lead in cooperative cataloging enter- 
prises. If we decide that it is on the whole more economical to use 
the R thickness, is it not probable that the Europeans will change to 
our thickness? 

4. Next to the books themselves and a building for housing them 
the card catalog is now admitted to be the most essential item in the 
equipment of a library. The average card catalog of the R thick- 
ness (estimating four cards to the book) occupies not over one seventy- 
fifth as much cubic space as the books which they catalog. If space 
can be found for the book, can not it also be found for the cards? 

5. The thinner the cards the more the public will resort to unusual 
measures to separate them (e. g., wetting the thumb and rubbing 
them up or bending or cramping them), with the result that the 
cards will w r ear out more rapidly. 

6. The use of the larger number of trays is incidentally advanta- 
geous in that one person is less liable to be using the tray which 
another person wishes to consult. 

7. The thicker the cards the less liable two cards are to be mistaken 
for one. Consequently, both public and official searching are quite 
likely to be more accurate if the thicker cards are used. 

8. The R thickness is now used in the public catalogs of the great 
majority of libraries in the United States. It is admitted to be quite 
undesirable to mix two thick'nesses of cards in the same catalog. If 
this were done, it would seriously add to the difficulties of using card 
catalogs and would lead to an increased percentage of errors arising 
from mistaking two cards for one. 


Appendix V 


Washington, D. C., June jo, 1905 

SIR: I have the honor to submit the annual report of the 
Law Library for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1905. 


The year has witnessed a marked growth in the law col- 
lections of the Library. The total accessions for 1904-5 
were 7,753 volumes, as against 3,780 volumes in 1903-4 and 
2,027 in 1902-3. 

The accessions include some notable works. Among 
those acquired by gift as a result of letters written to most 
of the foreign governments, their colonies and political sub- 
divisions, are the statutes of Switzerland (federal), Norway, 
Mexico, British East India, Victoria (Australia), and New 

The notable accessions through purchase include an al- Notable acces ~ 


most complete set of Pennsylvania County reports, a manu- 
script set of the Rhode Island session laws, 1653-1747 
(these laws were not printed previous to 1747), the Rhode 
Island session laws from 1754 to 1773, the session laws of 
New Hampshire from 1780 to 1789, and a valuable collec- 
tion of early English law books (see Appendix VI for a list 
of those published before 1600). The set of Year Books, or 
court reports, contained in the last named collection gives 
the Library of Congress as complete a collection of this ma- 
terial as is found in the best English law libraries. 


154 Report of the Librarian of Congress 


During the past year and a half many changes have been 
made in the location of the law literature of the Library. 
The present location and number of volumes is as follows: 

Library building, north curtain: 

International law 406 

Rare editions, American and foreign 892 

Foreign law, including British 20, 504 

Periodicals, American and foreign 5, 008 

American session law 5, 974 

Law theses, etc 2, 250 

American city ordinances 626 

American bar association reports 298 

Celebrated trials 5, 252 

Briefs and records of United States Supreme court . 4, ooo 

45, 210 
Reading room: American law reports, treatises, digests, 


East stack, deck 19: Old editions of English and Amer- 
ican treatises, etc 5, 380 

North stack, deck 9: " Duplicates " for exchange i, 518 

Law books classified with other subjects 6, 250 


Law Library at Capitol: English and American law reports, 

statutes, treatises, etc 35, 030 

Conference room of the United States Supreme court: Ameri- 
can law reports, treatises, etc 8, 970* 

Total no, 978 

The main collection, which is located in the north curtain 
of the Library building, duplicates in only few instances 
the law literature found elsewhere. This material is sub- 
ject to call by telephone from the Capitol and can be sent 
there by the underground book carrier in about ten min- 
utes. The shelves are also accessible to persons engaged in 

The collection at the Capitol comprises 2 copies of th( 
reports of the American State courts, 6 copies of United 
States Supreme court reports, i copy of the English court 
reports, the reports of United States courts of inferior juris- 
diction, the various reporter systems, collected cases, the 
modern English and American treatises, encylopaedias, di- 
gests, compilations, codes, statutes (American State stat- 
utes since 1850), and the recent law magazines. It aims to 

Custodian of the Law Library 155 

meet the more constant needs of the American practitioner 
as a working law library. 

The reference collection in the Reading Room of the 
Library building is less complete. It is composed almost 
entirely of copies "A" of the copyright deposit of recent 
years. Because of the inadequate space to accommodate 
law scholars and students at the Capitol it is highly desira- 
ble to add at once such State court reports, statutes, compi- 
lations, codes, digests, and treatises as are necessary to make 
this collection a good working library. 

In disregard of the unity of the law collection, about 
6,000 law books are scattered among the stacks of the main 
Library, classified with such subjects as international law, 
constitutional law, politics, treaties, commerce, education, 
land systems, revenues, elections, military and naval science, 
technology, transportation, agriculture, the history of vari- 
ous countries, etc. Outside of the law books classified with 
these subjects practically the same scheme of shelf classifica- 
tion exists. As all parts of the law collections are resorted 
to by attendants and readers, it has seemed best to adopt a 
very simple plan of shelf classification and to have it uniform 


Among the changes which have been made with a view 
to improving the service are: a special arrangement with 
the Copyright Office whereby all the law books received on 
deposit are more promptly placed at the disposal of the 
Library; another arrangement with the Document Division 
to attain a similar result in regard to the law books received 
by gift and exchange; the introduction of certain devices to 
overcome the difficulties inherent in the administration of 
the widely scattered law collections, and an adaptation of the 
shelf -list card catalogue to record the law books discovered 
to be lacking and the steps taken to acquire them through 
gift, copyright, or purchase. 

A systematic inventory of the law literature of the Library 
has been begun. This is a large and important undertak- 
ing. It involves the critical examination and careful colla- 

156 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

tionof nearly 111,000 volumes, together with the making o 
a record on cards of such data as are necessary to identify 
and distinguish each book. The work has progressed slowly 
and much remains to be done before an accurate apprecia- 
tion can be formed of what the Library needs to complete 
its collections. 

Law books have* been found in all parts of the Library. 
Sometimes different publications have been discovered incor- 
rectly bound together; at other times, most misleadingly let- 
tered. Several valuable and rare books not on the records 
of the Library have been brought to light, e. g. , a revision 
of the Maryland laws of 1700 not known to exist; two 
copies of the Year Book 40-50, Edward III, Tottell, 1576 
no copy of which exists in any other library of the world so 
far as published catalogues, bibliographies, works on early 
printing, etc., in the Library of Congress show; twelve Year 
Books of the reign of Henry VI, including four Pynsons, 
bound together without any mark indicating Library owner- 
ship and without mention on any of the Library records. 
How these and several other rare law books came into the 
Library it is now hard to say, but that they are here is a 
matter for congratulation. 

Improvements have been made in the heating, lighting, 
and ventilation of the Law Library at the Capitol. 


An attempt has been made to give an estimate of the 
degree of completeness of the present law collections of the 
Library for the purpose of submitting some suggestions in 
respect to a plan of development:

Empire, Hungary Poor 

International law, public and private Poor 

(i) Bibliography of law, legislation, administration, etc. 

In the development of any collection of literature the 
bibliography of that literature must be the subject of first 
consideration. Bibliography indicates the material which 
exists, the quantity and relations of that material and where 
it is to be found. In some instances the scientific and com- 
mercial value of the books is indicated. All this informa- 
tion is obviously a prerequisite to the acquisition of the 
material itself. It is equally apparent that all the desirable 
material can not be acquired at once. In the meantime a 
great library must be in a position to furnish helpful infor- 
mation about the books which have not yet come into its 
possession. To develop the bibliography alone of the mass 
of law, legislation, and administration of all the legal sys- 
tems, past and present, will require vigilant search. 

(2) United States 

Assuming that it should be the aim of the Library to 
possess at least one copy of every law publication printed 
in the United States (including the colonial era), I think 
that no opportunity to complete our collection should be 

158 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

allowed to pass unless the price demanded in a particular 
case is clearly unreasonable in view of the known supply. 
Though the Library has received from one to two copies of 
all law books copyrighted since 1846, yet many of the legal 
publications of this period are lacking either because they 
were not copyrighted or because they have been lost or worn 
out. There are also large gaps in the law material pub- 
lished previous to 1846. Henceforth I think the Library 
should secure three copies of all State court reports (i. e., 
of the courts of last resort) and two copies of all statutes 
and codes. For the most part these can be had without 
cost through gift, exchange, or copyright. 

(3) Great Britain 

As the material on the English public and common law 
published before 1800 is necessary to an understanding of 
the foundations of our law, the Library should aim to pos- 
sess one copy of every such law publication. The standard 
which the Harvard Law school has adopted for its library 
viz. } to secure all the editions of all classical English law 
books would seem obligatory upon the national library. 
Of the more recent British law material there must be an 
intelligent selection, else much money may be wasted. 

(4) International law and comparative constitutional law 

The development of the collection of international public 
and private law and the collection of constitutions and 
constitutional law of the various countries is of the first 
importance. This material, together with that heretofore 
mentioned, should receive, I believe, our early attention and 
should be gathered as completely and rapidly as possible. 
The fund placed at the disposal of the Chief Justice could 
very properly be used in this direction. Much of the mate- 
rial, however, is scarce and expensive and the fund at his 
disposal is but $3,000 yearly. It ought to be $10,000. 

(5) Law magazines and bar association reports 

The Library is very weak in its collection of English and 
American law magazines and the bar association reports of 

Custodian of the Law Library 159 

all countries. Some of the latter, especially the later reports, 
can be secured by gift. Both these materials, when prop- 
erly indexed, will be full of suggestion to legislators and 
administrators as well as to members of the bench and bar. 

(6) Spanish law 

The Library has almost nothing on Spanish law. The 
law of the various Spanish countries and our own Spanish 
possessions should be gathered with much completeness. 
To develop systematically and make available this material 
will require the service of a specialist thoroughly familiar 
with the legal institutions of the Spanish speaking peoples. 
Such a person, too, should possess a knowledge of Anglo- 
American legal institutions. 

(7) Briefs and records of the Supreme court, 

The briefs and records should be collected, gathered, and 
bound as soon as possible. Several fine collections made by 
Justices of the Supreme court during a long service on the 
bench have been sold on their decease to other libraries. 
The libraries of the Bar Associations of New York and 
Philadelphia have almost perfect collections, while a super- 
ficial examination shows that the collection of the Library 
of Congress is very imperfect. 

(8) British colonial law 

The Library is very deficient in British colonial law out- 
side of Australia, India, and Canada. Because of the gen- 
eral practice of printing small editions the British colonial 
material is scarce and expensive. To avoid the payment of 
fancy prices the Library should be a regular subscriber to 
the current publications. Care must also be taken to secure 
in season any newly started publications. 

(9) Foreign law, other than British and Spanish 

The Library lacks the court reports and codes of most of 
the foreign countries, but. has made a fair start in collecting 
the modern statutes. In addition to the official editions we 

160 Report of the Librarian of Congress 

should secure, I believe, the best private editions. The 
latter are generally of more practical use because copiously 
annotated. Several of the current official publications aye 
now received through gift and exchange, and an attempt 
should be made to secure all. Where material comes by 
gift the tendency to delay the sending or the failure to send 
altogether must be provided against by prompt notices. 
As the ordinance power of the administration is much 
larger in foreign countries than in the United States, it is 
important that we should secure the collections of decrees, 
ordinances, etc. 

Histories of the law, encyclopaedias, digests, scientific 
magazines, and treatises dealing with the substantive and 
adjective law of the different countries and important 
political subdivisions thereof are numerous, and care must 
constantly be exercised to ascertain those which are essen- 
tial to a good working library. Much opportunity exists 
here to squander money on useless material. The fact that 
a title is announced in a trade list furnishes few or no 
criteria of the importance and merit of the work. Unfor- 
tunately some publishers of the best law works are very 
indifferent booksellers, and vice versa. To safeguard our- 
selves in this field it will be necessary to keep in touch 
with the law scholars, judges, lawyers, and law libraries of 
the different countries. Where translations in English and 
French have been made they should be acquired as well as 
the originals. 

(10) Law theses, addresses, pamphlets, etc., of all countries 

Though this material can generally be had without 
cost on application to the authors or other proper per- 
sons, its development entails a vast and vigilant reading 
of the various law publications and a considerable corre- 
spondence. When properly indexed this literature will 
be found very useful to law scholars and students of legis- 
lative problems. 

Custodian of the Law Library 161 


( 1 1 ) Celebrated trials, legal biography, etc. 

In the collecting of celebrated trials, legal biographies, 
and other literature which may be considered to possess a 
somewhat ornamental and entertaining interest to the pro- 
fession, the Library seems to have made a fair start, espe- 
cially in the material written in the English language. 
Where other libraries are lacking, in this field the Library 
of Congress will generally be presumed to have the particu- 
lar work desired. We shall therefore be obliged ultimately 
to develop these collections with much completeness. 

Need of technical aid 

Such, in a general way, are the conditions and needs of Library service 
the Library as regards the law literature itself. But to 
ascertain these facts in detail, to develop the law collection 
systematically, and to put it in a position to realize its 
greatest usefulness will require the service of specialists. 

Of the nearly two score Government libraries in Wash- 
ington, most of them are being developed under the direc- 
tion of specialists in connection with the needs of their 
severely technical work. The Library of Congress, as pri- 
marily a legislative library, must likewise employ specialists 
thoroughly trained in the technicalities of law and legisla- 
tion if it would meet the practical needs of legislators, 
judges, executive officers, et al. Economy dictates the 
same thing. It is sheer waste to gather and house worth- 
less material or to classify. and index useful material in such 
fashion that it is unavailable for the practical needs of those 
for whom it was gathered. The man who knows the liter- 
ature, history, and juristic phraseology of legislation may 
be expected not only to classify and catalogue law books 
rapidly and accurately, but to accumulate that precise 
knowledge which is so invaluable to the busy legislator 
who comes to the Library and seeks to exhaust the subject 
of his particular inquiry in the most direct way. 

Practically the entire time of the present force of the 
Law Library is consumed in serving the readers with the 
law literature that has happened to come into the Library's 


Report of the Librarian of Congress 

possession. This is the service for which they have been 
selected and must be retained. 

Since 1832 the Law Library has existed somewhat apart 
from the general Library. At that time by act of Congress 
most of the law literature was segregated and the Justices of 
the Supreme court were given a measure of control in its 
management and use. Since then Congress has ordered 
that the Law Library be kept open every day so long as 
either House is in session and that appropriations for its 
increase be expended under the direction of the Chief Jus- 
tice; but thus far no provision has been made for the em- 
ployment of specialists, technically trained in the various 
legal systems, to assist in the systematic development of an 
organic collection. 

The activity of several richly endowed bar association and 
university law libraries, together with the scarcity of a vast 
quantity of valuable law material, would seem to make it 
incumbent upon Congress soon to provide adequately for 
the growth of this Library if its intention to have a great 
and useful law collection is to be carried out.

(sig. 2 1. not signed; A-L, in sixes; M (?) in fours; A-L,, K, 
M 2 , O, N-Y, Zz, Aa-Bb in twos; a-b in sixes; c in fours). 

"The first edition of Ptolemy's geography with Mercator's maps. 
The text is the version of Pirckheymer, edited by Arnoldus Mylius, 
whose dedication of the work to Abraham Ortelius is dated ' ' Colonise 
calendis lulij, anno D. 1583". The privileges on the verso of the 
title to the maps are subscribed "Datum Viennse Austrise 26. Maij. 
1578", and "Datum 3. Februarij 1578. Bruxellee" ; and the dedication 
"Duysburgi mense Febr: 1583 . . . Geradus Mercator". The 
colophon is on the verso of the last leaf of the final index (sig. c 3 ). 
The 28 copperplate maps, sometimes colored, are the same as those 
printed separately in 1578 and are on double pages, with one excep- 
tion. They comprise the "Vniversalis tabvla ivxta Ptolemevm", 
ten of Europe, five of Africa (one of which is on a single leaf entitled 
"Appendix. III. Tabvlae Afr:", verso blank) and twelve of Asia. 
These maps were reprinted in 1605 and 1619. 

This edition corresponds to that in the Boston Athenaeum with 
the exception of sig. F, which is not incorrectly signed E.
